Answer to #1

ANS: B
The Piaget preoperational stage of cognitive development includes the development of egocentric thinking (understanding the world from only one perspective, that of the self).

Answer to #2

ANS: A
Accidents are the leading cause of injury and death of infants and young children.

Answer to #3

ANS: D
Oral hygiene for the young infant consists of offering sips of clear water and wiping and massaging the infant's gums. Cola, milk, and juice should not be introduced at this young age.

Answer to #4

ANS: B
The autoimmunity theory holds that with aging, the body becomes less able to recognize or tolerate the self. As a result the immune system produces antibodies that act against the self.

Answer to #5

ANS: C
Only one new food should be introduced at a time, followed by several days between new foods. Cereals should be introduced first, followed by fruits and vegetables, and last meats. Food should not be mixed to allow the infant to develop interest in different foods and tastes.

Answer to #6

ANS: A
According to the activity theory, the older person who is more active socially is more likely to adjust well to aging.
