For newborns of age four to six weeks whose mothers have been the primary caregivers, the following is true: When the newborns are crying due to hunger or other similar discomfort, merely hearing the mother’s voice will lead to a temporary halt in crying, while the voices of others do not have this effect.
Which one of the following is most reasonably supported by the information above?
(A) Babies more easily learn to recognize the voices of their mothers than the voices of other people.
(B) A mother’s voice is the first thing a baby learns to recognize.
(C) Babies associate the voice of the primary caregiver with release from discomfort.
(D) Often only a primary caregiver can provide comfort to a newborn.
(E) Discomfort in newborns is best relieved by hearing the mother’s voice.

I don't like any of the answers... :(

A) Babies more easily learn to recognize the voices of their mothers than the voices of other people.

Seems to be out of scope and not necessarily supported

(B) A mother’s voice is the first thing a baby learns to recognize.

Definatley out of scope and not supported

(C) Babies associate the voice of the primary caregiver with release from discomfort.

I vote for this one, this association is demonstrated by the empirical evidence.

(D) Often only a primary caregiver can provide comfort to a newborn.

Close to being supported, but a bit extreme.

(E) Discomfort in newborns is best relieved by hearing the mother’s voice.

Definatley not supported.


I choose C.
