An individual in early adulthood experiences a period of exploration during this life stage

Identity diffusion

An individual in early adulthood experiences a period of exploration during this life stage because during this time, they are transitioning from adolescence to adulthood and exploring different life paths and ventures. While all life stages involve some degree of exploration, early adulthood tends to be more focused on self-discovery and making choices that will shape one's future. Options B, C, and D are incorrect because they refer to concepts related to other life stages. Option B deals with the struggle to form intimate relationships in adulthood, while C and D both refer to specific stages in middle adulthood and childhood, respectively. Therefore, these options are not applicable to the period of exploration in early adulthood.

Intimacy versus isolation

Generativity versus stagnation

Industry versus inferiority
