  • Psychology -

    First, make sure you thoroughly understand all of the vocabulary in your answer choices.

    1. Obviously, Susan isn't exhibiting motor or language skills. That leaves cognitive and social skills. Isn't mothering a social skill?

    2. When a three-month old raises his head from the pillow, he's showing a motor skill. Is it gross or fine motor?

    If you post your answers, we'll be glad to check them.
