Weegy: According to the passage, the crops domesticated in Africa were: millet, sorghum, and yams. User: Read the following passage and answer the questions 6 through 10: As infants and caregivers respond to one another in the first year, the infant begins to form an attachment – a deep, affectionate, close, and enduring relationship - to these important figures. John Bowlby, a British psychoanalyst, drew attention to the importance of attachment when he observed the dire effects of separation from parents on children who had been orphaned during World War II. These children’s depression and other emotional scars led Bowlby to propose a theory about the importance of developing a strong attachment to one’s primary caregivers – a tie that normally keeps infants close to these caregivers and, therefore, safe. Soon after Bowlby described his theory, researchers in the United States began to investigate how such attachments are formed and what happens when they are not formed, or when they are broken by loss or separation. Perhaps the most dramatic of these studies was conducted with monkeys by Harry Harlow. (More)
