Suppose you salivate every time your friend takes out a bottle of your favorite hot sauce because of classical conditioning. Then, your friend starts bringing you some milk every time she takes out the hot sauce bottle (because she knows it is the best way to cool the heat!). What would probably happen in the mornings when you see milk for your cereal? A)You would also salivate because it is a new conditioned stimulus, like the original hot sauce bottle. B)You would not salivate because of the phenomenon known as blocking. C)You would not salivate because you can never have two stimuli that lead to the same conditioned response. D)You would salivate because the milk led to a prediction error.

A)You would also salivate because it is a new conditioned stimulus, like the original hot sauce bottle.
This is because, as the choice had stated, the milk has become a new conditioned stimulus that adds to your previous stimulus. The scenario did not mention anything about blocking or preventing you from salivating and a new stimulus can also lead to the same reaction.
