Angst comes from a fear of responsibility, not from fear of the specific consequences of one's actions. For instance, one could fear the consequences of one's action even if one does not feel responsible for those consequences, but that wouldn't be angst. Since the question asked which of the following statements is NOT stated about angst, this is the correct answer choice.

Angst results from fear of the consequences of one's actions.
Angst comes from one's freedom to make decisions.
When one understands that one is completely responsible for the results of one's actions one feels angst.
Angst is a feeling of apprehension that comes from the knowledge that one is accountable for one's actions.
Angst comes from both the freedom to make decisions and the knowledge that one is responsible for the consequences of one's actions.
