I know this is 6 years too late to reply to your post, but i think i found the answer. I too came across a similarly worded question and choices were almost the same as yours. Anyway, as you guessed, I too have the same answer as yours, which is a c) Exchibits Intuitive thought. At first i was convinced that B or makes simple classification was the answer but as I did countless research over the internet to confirm i found the answer from this book via the internet on pg 712 "Health Assessment in Nursing, 4e": North American Edition By Janet R. Weber, Jane Kelley (Health Assessment in Nursing, 4e ... - Google Books
It states that verbatim, "the stage of preoperational thought (age 2 to 7 years) consists of 2 phases. In the preconceptual phase, extending from age 2 to 4, the child forms concepts that are not as complete or logical as an adult's; makes simple classifications
; associates one event with a simlutaneous one (transductive reasoning); and exhibits egocentric thinking.
"In the intuitive phase extending from age 4-7, the child becomes capable of classifying, quantifying, and relating objects but remains unaware of the principles behind these operations; exhibits intuitive thought processes
(is aware that something is right but cannot say why); is unable to see viewpont of others; and uses many words appropriately but without a real knowledge of their meaning."
so there you have it! I hope it helps..i'm sure it helped me.
