    The point of Phobia Awarness

    The point of Phobia Awareness Week is to highlight the difficulties that many people face in everyday situations. It is important to distinguish between a fear and a phobia. It's (1) ... usual for all of us to have our own peculiar fears, for example being anxious around snakes or nervous about flying.

    1. very
    2. absolutely
    3. quite
    4. truly

    Why not 2 or 4?

    Those two words do not colocate naturally with "usual". I would choose #3 as the correct answer.

    I don't like any of the choices; they all are unnatural for me. I would use "normal" or "common".
