As Marcia took her place in the classroom on her first day of class, a familiar feeling surged inside of her. She found herself "scoping out the competition," considering topics for the "best in class" paper, and listening for an opportunity to add to class discussion on the first day. According to drive-reduction theory, Marcia:

a) will experience a reduction in her competitive drive if she does well on her first exam.
b) is presenting a secondary drive to compete.
c) will establish a homeostatic condition and be less competitive as the class progresses.
d) is presenting a primary drive to compete.

I think b.

    Competing merely to excel would be a secondary drive.

    so b is correct?
