S1. Ans.(d)
Sol. Piaget’s (1936) theory of cognitive development explains how a child constructs a mental model of the world

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. Piaget studied the intellectual development of his own three children and created a theory that described the stages that children pass through in the development of intelligence and formal thought processes.

S3. Ans.(a)

S4. Ans.(d)
Sol. Assimilation: The process of taking in new information into our already existing schemas is known as assimilation.

S5. Ans.(b)

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. Reflexes (0-1 month): During this substage, the child understands the environment purely through inborn reflexes such as sucking and looking.

S7. Ans.(d)
Sol. In sensorimotor, sub-stage: Coordination of Reactions (8-12 months)- During this substage, the child starts to show clearly intentional actions. The child may also combine schemas in order to achieve a desired effect. Children begin exploring the environment around them and will often imitate the observed behavior of others. The understanding of objects also begins during this time and children begin to recognize certain objects as having specific qualities. For example, a child might realize that a rattle will make a sound when shaken.

S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. Egocentrism: Childrens’ thoughts and communications are typically egocentric (i.e. about themselves). Egocentrism refers to the child’s inability to see a situation from another person’s point of view. According to Piaget, the egocentric child assumes that other people see, hear, and feel exactly the same as the child does.

S9. Ans.(b)
Sol.Centration is the tendency to focus on only one aspect of a situation at one time. When a child can focus on more than one aspect of a situation at the same time they have the ability to decenter.

S10. Ans.(a)
Sol. In Piaget’s theory of cognitive development, the third stage is called the Concrete Operational Stage. During this stage, which occurs from age 7-12, the child shows increased use of logic or reasoning. One of the important processes that develops is that of Seriation, which refers to the ability to sort objects or situations according to any characteristic, such as size, color, shape, or type. For example, the child would be able to look at his plate of mixed vegetables and eat everything except the brussels sprouts.
