A mother says to her eight-year-old son, "If we feed your infant brother now, he will go to sleep early. And if he goes to sleep early, then you and I will have a little time to read your new book before you have to go to bed. So if we feed your brother now, then what will happen?" Will her son answer the question correctly?

▸ Yes, because children of this age can engage in propositional logic.

▸ No, because the boy will not be able to connect the sentences in his mind because they are not concrete.
