I say E because:

A: Infants prefer faces over anything else (especially their mother's)
B: Infants can suck on the breast within less than an hour
C: They're near-sighted
D: Hearing develops almost fully in the womb

Yes answer is correct..E



(E) Normal newborns are endowed with a set of reflexes to facilitate survival, including rooting and sucking reflexes, and remarkable sensory abilities. The newborn is no longer considered a blank slate. Instead, the newborn is seen as having genetic strengths and weaknesses in neurocognitive organization that are reflected in temperament, adaptability, responsiveness, and general interaction with the environment.

Hearing is well developed at birth, and speech sounds are preferred. The infant learns to recognize his mother’s voice and differentiate it from other female voices within the first 3 weeks of life.

At birth infants prefer to gaze at a human face rather than geometric designs, and they also prefer curved lines, bright colors, and high contrast. Infants are myopic at birth. They are able to suckle at the breast immediately after
birth.
