The answer is letter A. Both echoic and iconic memories they are part of the sensory memory. Sensory memory refers to an individual ability to maintain the impression of the sensory information for a brief time after the original stimulus has ceased. It is an automatic response that is considered to be outside of cognitive control. Iconic and Echoic memories are the types of sensory memories. Iconic memories are the inputs to the visual systems that last for a duration of 100 milliseconds; whereas echoic memories are the inputs to the auditory system that can only hold information for about 3-4 seconds.
