Question 1, the correct answer would be d. The Department of Basic Education (DBE) in South Africa is primarily focused on ensuring the provision of quality education across the country. For Question 2, the correct option is b. Accommodation, in terms of cognitive development, involves adjusting or modifying existing schemas (knowledge) to adapt and accommodate new experiences. In Question 3, c would be a likely answer if the mechanism of the discussed impact in the text points at identity confusion in boys with absent fathers. For Question 4, the appropriate answer would be c. Language development is predominantly associated with the acquisition and development of a child's mother tongue or home language. The answer for Question 5 based on Rude and Kelley's perspective would be d. Language development is typically viewed as the process where children start to combine words and sentences. Question 6, c is correct. A phoneme is identified as the smallest unit of sound in speech that can distinguish one word from another. In Question 7, d is the correct choice. The preoperational stage, according to Piaget, is so named because children lack the ability to perform specific cognitive operations. Question 8, the correct response is c. Strife and tension in a polygamous family can have a negative impact on a child's overall development. For Question 9, the correct answer is b. In Piaget's theory, equilibrium is a state of balance achieved from the continuous process of assimilation (integrating new knowledge into existing schemas) and accommodation (modifying existing schemas to accommodate new information). In Question 10, e (Pragmatics) is correct. The sentence "I am not open to any suggestions," implies the speaker's stance and is indicative of pragmatics, the aspect of language that deals with how context influences the interpretation of meaning. Question 11, the answer should be c. Children reach equilibrium once they have struck a balance between their existing knowledge and incorporating new experiences into their learning. Lastly, for question 12, listed options a and c are quite advanced for Grade R children, their developmental milestones at this stage are more likely to involve activities like coloring or simple number recognition exercises, so options d and e seem a more likely response.
