Horrific -> Threatening
Physically Dangerous -> Threatening
Not Physically Dangerous but Revulsive - > Horrific

E) Not Physically Dangerous but Psychologically Dangerous and Revulsive -> Threatening

Remember, the stimulus says "Whether or not it's psychologically dangerous" so the attribute "Psychologically Dangerous" is irrelevant in either the affirmative or the negative.

Removing that confusing element, we see that for the stimulus diagram to hold, "Not Physically Dangerous but Revulsive" must lead to "Threatening" in order for "Horrific" to be possible. Threatening is a necessary condition, after all, for Horrific.
