    Correct Answer
    C. Autonomy vs. shame and doubt.
    Explanation
    According to Erikson's theory of psychosocial development, the developmental task of toddlerhood is autonomy vs. shame and doubt. During this stage, toddlers begin to develop their independence and assert their will. They strive to do things on their own and make choices, which leads to a sense of autonomy. However, if they are overly criticized or controlled by their caregivers, they may develop feelings of shame and doubt in their abilities. This stage is crucial for the development of self-confidence and a sense of personal control.

The preschooler period is a time of refinement and further development of these motor skills.

    Explanation
    During the adolescent years, the primary cause of death is injuries. This can be attributed to various factors such as accidents, car crashes, falls, or sports-related injuries. Adolescents are often engaged in risky behaviors and may lack the maturity to make safe decisions, leading to a higher likelihood of injuries. While suicide, drug abuse, and firearms are significant concerns during this age, injuries remain the leading cause of death among adolescents.
