    Risk appetite is the degree of uncertainly one is willing to accept in anticipation of a reward. A workaround is an unplanned response to a risk event. Risk Threshold is the level of risk exposure above which risks are addressed and below which risks may be accepted. Therefore, right answer is C. [PMBOK 6th edition, Page 721] [Project Risk Management].
