Overview

Explanation

The correct answer is D. When a variation outside of normal limits triggers an automatic response that corrects the situation, the mechanism is called negative feedback. Positive feedback produces a response that exaggerates normal limits. Crisis management and homeostasis have no role in an automatic response that corrects a variation outside of normal limits.
