For this question, i am wondering why C is incorrect. Didn't the children do the delayed gratification multiple times in the 2nd experiment? Also, in the 2nd experiment, compared to first experiment where 2/3 of children did not delay, in condition 2, over 90 percent of children did not delay.

So why can't C be the answer?

Thanks!

In the second experiment, the children aren't being asked to delay gratification explicitly. An extra step where an adult either brings back art supplies or not is added before the task to see if anything changes in the responses, but we can't say for sure that the children are finding it harder to delay gratification if the adult doesn't bring back better art supplies. It could be interpreted that the children are reasoning that the adult won't follow through with candy so they choose not to wait (rational decision).
