All I know is that by 4 yes of age they use pleural and prepositions.

By 2 yrs 50% of speech is intelligible.

By 3 yrs 75% of speech is intelligible.

Answer (A)

Both speech and language are sufficiently developed by 4 years so that the child’s verbal communications are fully understandable, even by strangers. Mispronunciations and grammatical errors, however, remain common until about 41/2 years or even 5 years
