Answer c.

(C) The advent of object constancy corresponds with qualitative changes in social and communicative development. The infant looks back and forth between an approaching stranger and a parent, as if to contrast known from unknown, and may cling or cry anxiously. This occurs around 8–9 months of age. Separations often become more difficult, and infants who have been sleeping through the night for months begin to awaken regularly and cry, as though remembering that parents are in the next room.
