Q:According to d'Holbach's view, if you decided to throw yourself out of a window, what would this demonstrate regarding free will?

Some possible answers are:
a. nothing. mental disturbances can cause people to become self-destructive.
b. the attraction of the windows cause people to jump through them.
c. demonstrating free choice can be dangerous.
d. that human behavior is chaotic and irrational.
e. none of the above.

I don't think it can be A,B, or D but i am not certain of the correct answer (or even if i ruled out the correct answer). I appreciate any help.

I would think it to be E. but I can't be sure

C is the most accurate. If it is wrong then E, but I would say C. We have had many such discussions about this in Philosophy and Logic.
