after one beaker is inverted. The child apparently lacks a:
a) concept of conservation. b) secure attachment. c) capacity for habituation. d) sense of object permanence. Question 7 Ty's parents divorced when he was 5. His father moved out of state, and his mother 
is kept busy with trying to keep a roof over their heads. Ty is now 13 and has been 
getting into some minor troubles with school and with the law. Despite this, his 
mother still allows Ty to come and go when he wishes, she rarely if ever punishes 
him, and gives in to whatever he wants. She feels guilty about the divorce and that

now probably
a) does not hear as well. b) is more susceptible to catching the flu. c) has significantly fewer neural connections. d) has all of these problems. Question 11 Mrs. Wilson is 78 years old and over the past few years she has become increasingly
susceptible to bouts of pneumonia. This can most clearly be attributed to
