Once the motor skills for their limbs are developed then finger manipulation and other fine tuned movements will develop.

Convex Graph/Curve: This learning curve is also called negatively accelerated curve. It depicts rapid initial improvement in learning that decreases with time.
S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. In Learning Curve: A learning curve is the representation in graph form of the rate of learning something over time or repeated experiences.
End Spurt: The increased productivity or gain in performance near the end of a task.
