Which of the following statements is most true about how a newborn’s senses function?

(A) A newborn’s senses function the same as an adult’s since the sensory apparatus develops in the womb.
(B) All of our senses function normally when we are newborns except taste due to lack of stimulation in the womb.
(C) All of our senses function normally when we are newborns except touch due to lack of stimulation in the womb.
(D) A newborn’s senses function at a very low level but develop very quickly with experience. 
(E) Most senses function normally, but sight develops slowly with experience.

Answer
(E) Most senses function normally, but sight develops slowly with experience.

Explanation
Most of our senses function at birth other than sight, which develops quickly as we mature. Lack of stimulation seems to have little effect on touch and taste, and most senses function at a normal level, not a low one.
