    Explanation
    Moral development is a process that occurs in stages, where individuals progress from a basic understanding of right and wrong to more complex moral reasoning.

    There are four levels of moral development.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement that there are four levels of moral development is false. In reality, there are six levels of moral development according to Lawrence Kohlberg's theory. These levels include obedience and punishment orientation, self-interest orientation, interpersonal accord and conformity, authority and social-order maintaining orientation, social contract orientation, and universal ethical principles orientation. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    At Conventional stage the child adopts rules and sometimes subordinates his own needs to the needs of others.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    At the Conventional stage of moral development, individuals begin to adopt societal rules and norms. They understand the importance of following these rules and may even prioritize the needs of others over their own. This stage is characterized by a desire to maintain social order and adhere to the expectations of others. Therefore, the statement that at the Conventional stage the child adopts rules and sometimes subordinates his own needs to the needs of others is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    At pre-Conventional level the child follows rules set down by others.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    At the pre-conventional level, children tend to follow rules that are set by others. This means that their behavior is guided by external factors such as authority figures or the fear of punishment. They may not yet have developed a strong sense of personal values or moral reasoning, and instead rely on external rules to determine right from wrong. This stage is characterized by a focus on self-interest and obedience to avoid negative consequences. Therefore, the given statement that the child follows rules set down by others is true at this level of moral development.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    According to Kohlberg a child passes through eight distinctive stages of moral development.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Kohlberg's theory of moral development actually consists of six stages, not eight. Each stage represents a different level of moral reasoning, from a focus on self-interest to a concern for universal ethical principles. The stages are grouped into three main levels: pre-conventional, conventional, and post-conventional. Therefore, the statement that a child passes through eight distinctive stages of moral development is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    During stage 1 of Pre-Conventional level the child is egocentric and standards of morality are external.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    During stage 1 of the Pre-Conventional level, children are egocentric, meaning they are primarily focused on their own needs and desires. They have not yet developed a sense of empathy or understanding of others' perspectives. Additionally, their standards of morality are external, meaning they rely on external rules and consequences to determine right from wrong, rather than internalizing moral values. This stage is characterized by a self-centered perspective and a limited understanding of moral principles. Therefore, the statement "During stage 1 of Pre-Conventional level the child is egocentric and standards of morality are external" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    During Stage 2 of Pre-Conventional level the child recognizes his point of view, his self and is able to make account of others roles in so far as he can use them to obtain what he wants.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    During Stage 2 of the Pre-Conventional level, children begin to develop a sense of self and understand their own desires and needs. They also start to recognize the roles of others and how they can manipulate those roles to get what they want. This stage is characterized by a focus on self-interest and a limited understanding of moral rules. Therefore, the statement that the child recognizes his point of view, his self, and can use others' roles to obtain what he wants is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    At  stage 3 stage the child is able to adopt others viewpoints and morality is decided by what others want and think.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    At stage 3, according to Lawrence Kohlberg's theory of moral development, children enter the conventional level of moral reasoning. At this stage, individuals begin to consider the perspectives and opinions of others when making moral judgments. They start to understand that societal rules and expectations play a role in determining what is right and wrong. Therefore, it is true that at stage 3, children are able to adopt others' viewpoints, and their sense of morality is influenced by what others want and think.

    Rate this question:

  • 9.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    At stage 4 of moral development, according to Lawrence Kohlberg's theory, children begin to develop a set of moral principles for their guidance. This stage is known as the "Law and Order" stage, where individuals understand the importance of following rules and maintaining social order. They seek to uphold the laws and rules of society, not only to avoid punishment but also because they believe it is the right thing to do. They start to consider the perspectives and needs of others and develop a sense of fairness and justice. Therefore, the statement "At stage 4 the child develops a set of moral principles for his guidance" is true.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    At Stage 5 of moral development, individuals have internalized moral standards and their moral reasoning is based on principles of justice and fairness. They are able to take on the perspective of others in a more general sense, considering the needs and perspectives of a wider range of individuals. This stage is characterized by a recognition of the importance of individual rights and a commitment to upholding moral principles, even if they conflict with societal norms or laws. Therefore, the statement that at Stage 5 moral standards are more internalized and role-taking is more general is true.

At this stage, individuals have a strong sense of justice and believe in universal principles and rights. They are willing to act according to these principles, even if it means going against societal norms or laws. They have a deep understanding of the complexity of ethical issues and are able to make decisions based on their own principles and values rather than external influences.

    Growth in physical dimension during the period of 2 to 6 yrs is not fast as that experienced in infancy.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    During the period of 2 to 6 years, the growth in physical dimension is not as fast as it is during infancy. This means that children do not experience the same rapid growth in height and weight during this stage as they do in their first year of life. Instead, their growth rate slows down and becomes more gradual. Therefore, the statement that growth in physical dimension during the period of 2 to 6 years is not as fast as that experienced in infancy is true.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    By the end of the first year, a child's language development progresses rapidly. At ten months old, a child typically starts using single words. However, by the end of the first year, their vocabulary expands to include 3 to 4 words. This increase in vocabulary is a normal part of language development during the first year of a child's life. Therefore, the statement that the child's vocabulary increases to 3 to 4 words by the end of the first year is true.

    The statement suggests that there is a positive correlation between intelligence and language development. This means that individuals with higher intelligence tend to have better language development skills, while those with lower intelligence may struggle more in this area. This correlation implies that intelligence plays a role in the development of language skills, supporting the idea that intelligence and language development are interconnected.

Emotions are an integral part of human behavior and children, especially at a young age, may not have developed the skills to effectively regulate or express their emotions. Instead, they may resort to these indirect behaviors as a way to cope with or communicate their feelings.

  • 22. 

    The development in childhood operates on  ________level but in Adolescence the ability to generalize on ________ level develops.

    Correct Answer
    normal, perceptual
    perceptual, conceptual
    Explanation
    In childhood, the development operates on a normal level, which means that it follows the typical pattern of growth and progress. However, in adolescence, the ability to generalize on a perceptual level develops, indicating that teenagers are becoming more capable of understanding and interpreting their surroundings based on their senses and perceptions. As they continue to mature, their ability to generalize further advances to a conceptual level, allowing them to think abstractly and make connections beyond what they directly perceive.

    Rate this question:

  • 23.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that children have a greater ability to think in abstract terms compared to adolescents. However, this is not true. While children do have some capacity for abstract thinking, it is during adolescence that abstract thinking skills fully develop. Adolescents are able to think in hypothetical and symbolic terms, understand metaphors and analogies, and consider multiple perspectives. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    The infant does not have any real sense of duration at the begining of life.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Infants do not have a fully developed sense of duration at the beginning of life. This means that they are not able to accurately perceive or understand the concept of time passing. They may not be able to differentiate between short and long periods of time, and their perception of time may be distorted. As they grow and develop, their sense of duration improves. Therefore, the statement "The infant does not have any real sense of duration at the beginning of life" is true.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    During the formal operational stage, which typically occurs during adolescence, individuals develop the ability to engage in hypothetic-deductive reasoning. This means that they can think logically and systematically about hypothetical situations, generate and test hypotheses, and draw conclusions based on evidence and logical reasoning. This stage is characterized by abstract thinking and the ability to think about multiple possibilities and potential outcomes. Therefore, the statement that an adolescent starts a form of hypothetic-deductive reasoning at the formal operational stage is true.

This stage is characterized by the infant's need for a consistent and nurturing environment to develop a sense of trust in their caregivers and the world around them. If their needs are consistently met, they develop a sense of trust; otherwise, they may develop mistrust. Therefore, the statement "True" is correct as it accurately reflects Erikson's theory.
