Detail about MCQs

During Piaget’s Sensorimotor stage (from birth to about 2 years old), children are primarily focused on understanding the world through their sensory experiences and actions. At this stage, they exhibit egocentrism, which means they have difficulty understanding that others have different perspectives or viewpoints.
In the Preoperational stage (from about 2 to 7 years old), children develop symbolic thinking but still struggle with logical reasoning. Egocentrism is also prevalent during this stage, where children have difficulty seeing things from perspectives other than their own.
So, children are typically egocentric during the Sensorimotor and Preoperational stages of cognitive development.
