the question stem basically tells you that the child does not spend much time on the floor, "somebody always seems to be carryingg her around".

in this case your MOST concern should be the child ability to crawl, sit alone, and walk. All of this should occur btw the 7 to 15 month period. Since shes been carried around i would bet that she hasn't properly learned to do any of these things.

although separation anxiety could occur during that time period however based on the question stem i can also bet that the correlation between being carried and separation anxiety would be really small.

ANS - Gross motor would be affected.

Yes, you're right. The question stem mentions little about affection or something like that. I should read it more carefully. Thanks a lot!
