Psychology

One of the ways Robert nourishes his aggressive nature is by

A. Playing violent video games

B. Playing quarterback on the football team

C. Standing up for his belief in equality

D. Defending his brother against older children

I picked B, because the word nourishes can also imply foster, which could mean foster a behavior positively. Aggression involves hostile and destructive behavior. An aggressive person attacks, often without any prompting from another individual. Answer A, could increase a persons aggressive nature, which would imply fostering a negative behavior. Is my thinking correct or erroneous? This question could produce two answers that involve aggressive behavior, which is A & B. Thanks!
