    • D.

      17 weeks

    Correct Answer
    A. 13 weeks
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 13 weeks because at this stage, the embryo/fetus has completed the first trimester of development. At 13 weeks, the major organs and systems have formed, and the fetus is about the size of a lemon. This is an important milestone in pregnancy as the risk of miscarriage significantly decreases, and the fetus begins to move and respond to stimuli.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is 8 weeks. This is because at 8 weeks, the embryo/fetus is in the early stages of development. It has a distinct shape and recognizable features such as limbs, fingers, and toes. The organs are also forming, and the heart is beating. This stage is crucial for the growth and development of the baby.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is 20 weeks because at this stage of pregnancy, the fetus has developed enough for its age to be determined accurately. The development of the fetus at 20 weeks includes the formation of distinct facial features, the ability to hear sounds, and the development of organs such as the heart, lungs, and kidneys. Additionally, the fetus would have reached a length of about 6.5 inches and would be more active, with the mother being able to feel its movements.

These may include the formation of organs, limbs, and facial features, as well as the presence of distinct gender markers. Additionally, medical professionals can use ultrasound imaging and measurements to determine the age of the embryo/fetus, and these indicators align with the 14-week mark.
