• On the basis of the symptoms discussed above, what is the diagnosis of the case? (2)
• Which symptoms lead you to this particular diagnosis? Enlist any three of them. (3)
She prefers to cook over going to open/public places like market.
She is unable to tunnels, bridges, or in public transport.
Intense fear to travel in aeroplane.
• How this case will be differentially diagnosed from Social phobia? (5)
Panic disorder is not the same as agoraphobia (fear of public places), although many afflicted with panic disorder also suffer from agoraphobia. Panic attacks cannot be predicted, therefore an individual may become stressed, anxious or worried wondering when the next panic attack will occur
But in agoraphobia Some people stop going into situations or places in which they've previously had a panic attack in anticipation of it happening again.
These people have agoraphobia, and they typically avoid public places where they feel immediate escape might be difficult, such as shopping malls, public transportation, or large sports arenas.

• How this case will be differentially diagnosed from Panic disorder? (5)
Agoraphobia and social phobia are far in public settings. These two disorders are closely related which makes it hard to make out a distinction between them.
Agoraphobia can be termed as a fear of being in a crowded place or open space. Social phobia can be termed as a fear of facing the society; a fear that is characterized by excessive shyness in social situations.
One of the main differences between the two phobias is in the nature of the fear that person’s experience. While people with agoraphobia usually feel better in the company of a trusted companion, people with SAD may feel worse because of potential scrutiny by the companion as well.

Q. no. 2:

There are few nutritionists who claim that they can help their clients to reduce weight through aversion techniques. These nutritionists recommend clients to eat their favorite food such as French fries or sweets empty stomach in the morning as much as they want. Do you think this is a healthy way to reduce weight? Please justify your answer with the strong reasons and real life examples. (5)

Yes I think that its a healthy way to reduce wait because “Eat Breakfast Like a King, Lunch Like a Prince, and Dinner Like a Pauper” this is the way a person can get a healthy life so if a person can eat heavy food at breakfast time and in lunch and dinner he eat light food he will not gain much weight and he can also reduce weight. Here the nutritionists allow them to just eat their favourite food in morning not all the day and its healthy way to reduce wait because people cant eat much sweet food or oily food at morning time and except morning remaining all the day they are not allow to eat such type of food so they can easily reduce weight
