The right answer is C ().
The collective unconscious is a term from Jung's theory of personality. It is the oldest, deepest, and the most influential layer of the psyche, which represents the spiritual treasure of the inherited experience of ancestors, given in the form of innate predispositions for a certain way of human experience and reaction to the environment.
