Best answer

"Anxious" most likely is the answer.

If you add "the" in front of each word, then "the anxious" seems out of place for the simply reason that it is most often used as an adjective to describe something. All others are usually used as nouns and will connect with "the" and therefore belong with each other.

I accept your reason.
Thank you, good to get a feedback.
