    This helps a lot. Thank you! God bless.

    • Chito Apr 30, 2022 @ 15:32

      No. 4 ., From the word internal ripening the answer should be development, why is it appears to be MATURATION?

      • Suzette S.Tesoro Jun 17, 2022 @ 17:21

        It’s not development but it’s maturation.

      • Anonymous Jul 21, 2022 @ 19:34

        because it talk about Age,that’s why it is Maturation

    whats the answer on #25

    • Anonymous May 22, 2017 @ 16:11


  • absolute Sep 1, 2016 @ 14:41

    I don't think answer for #21 and #22 are correct. Shouldn't it be identity vs role confusion and law and order orientation? What does the secondary level in #21 mean? Is it in Grade 2 or Grade 8? Hmmm. and what about #22? I don't know.. Somebody please enlighten me? :)

    • Anonymous Sep 8, 2016 @ 15:07

      Same thoughts here …

    • Unknown Feb 25, 2017 @ 8:33

      the questions are vague so it's hard to discern what they're asking, kaya we'll just have to use our best judgment. ganyan din daw talaga sa LET, marami typos, vague questions and trick ones. my answers are the same with yours, but in #21 i'm also considering C, because of the "social aspect" part, pero sabi kasi affecting the behavior so pwede rin talaga yung B.

    • Anonymous Jul 13, 2017 @ 17:03

      Hello. I think for #21, the answer should be B. Identity vs Role Confusion :)Lito is in "secondary level", so mukhang "highschool" ang tinutukoy. assuming na di tayo sure, pde gawin basis kay erik erikson's psychosocial theory.
      Infant (birth – 18 months) – trust vs mistrust
      Toddler (18 months – 3 y/o) – autonomy vs shame and doubt
      Preschooler (3-6 y/o) – initiative vs guilt
      Schoolage (6-12 y/o) – industry vs inferiority
      Adolescent (12-20 y/o) – identity vs role confusion
      Young Adult (20-40 y/o) – intimacy vs isolation
      Middle Adult (40-60 y/0) – generativity vs stagnation
      Late Adult / Elderly (>60 y/o) – ego integrity vs despair

      Ang question kasi ni Mr/Miss Absolute sa first comment is ano sya, grade 2 or 8? hmmm… sige i-consider natin yung idea. kung grade 2, ibig sabihin nasa schoolage sya so ang task is industry vs inferiority which is wala sa options :) so malabo :) tapos ipasok natin yung idea nya na grade 8 daw. so "secondary" to di ba. nasa adolescent stage in which the task is identity vs role confusion (option B). tgis is the time na sinusubukan nya kilalanin ang kanyang sarili at he's trying to "identify" to which group he really belongs to. BASIS: spending time with friends affecting his behavior. so i think it's B :)option A kasi is for toddler, C is for young adult and D is for preschooler :)

    • Unknown Jun 6, 2018 @ 10:35

      I think you are right. When I read and answered myself nos 21 & 22, my answers are both B. The "secondary" here is referred to as the "high school year" (which is still way before the K12 program)

    • Unknown Jun 6, 2018 @ 10:39

      I went back to questions 21 and 22. I believe you are right. Both should have B as answers. The "secondary" level here refers to high school level, as K12 here is not yet implemented.

    • anonymous Jan 22, 2023 @ 6:18

      I’ve checked different reviewers to validate the answer but based on the LET reviewer, it’s the answers.

  • Unknown Sep 3, 2016 @ 9:42

    based fro what i understood i think the answer for number 21 is correct considering the statement that he spends more time with his friends

  • Unknown Sep 23, 2016 @ 9:26

    thank you so much …

  • Unknown Jan 11, 2017 @ 14:55

    Thank you so much and God bless you.

      Hi ma'am did you pass your LET exam ? because you used this as your reviewer? Thanks :)

    • Anonymous Jan 20, 2017 @ 14:49

      I think number 23 is Development ?

    • Anonymous Feb 27, 2017 @ 1:53

      no, i angry the answer because it says that she reached when she acquired new skills…….

  • Unknown Jan 30, 2017 @ 13:04

    may i know the answer for #25 please. thank you. :)

  • Unknown Feb 4, 2017 @ 6:16


    • Unknown Feb 25, 2017 @ 8:25

      I think the answer can be either B or C, B because of the phrase "greatly affected his behavior", which means his social relationships have a great effect on his behavior, and his behavior is a reflection of his identity. Or C, because of said social relationships he has with friends and family (intimacy)

  • Unknown Feb 4, 2017 @ 6:18

    Ano po answer sa #25?

    • Anonymous Feb 8, 2017 @ 2:18

      I think 25 is C

    • Unknown Feb 25, 2017 @ 8:19

      For me it's D, cognitive since it specified the "academic area"

  • Anonymous Jul 23, 2017 @ 5:36

    Hang on. Answer to Q21 should be letter B. the formation of Lito's identity is influenced by those whom he associates with.
    And the answer to Q23 should not be Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD) sinceit's not really a level or a stage that one reaches. Rather it is like this abstract place/situation when/where to best teach a learner. It is where the learner acquires new knowledge best with the use of scaffolding.

    • Anonymous Jan 23, 2018 @ 6:10

      agree with 23. it should not be C. I think it should be D. Learning instead..?

      • Anonymous Apr 30, 2022 @ 15:41

        Yes , I think so

  • taju Aug 5, 2017 @ 4:48

    Why is no. 9 letter B??

  • Unknown Sep 21, 2017 @ 15:50

    In # 22 the answer is letter C. Interpersonal Concordance. The description of this is that "Authority is respected"

  • Anonymous Sep 22, 2017 @ 11:28

    i think 21 is b. behavior is judged by the extent to which it shows respect for authority.

  • Anonymous Nov 1, 2017 @ 4:37

    what is the correct answer in number 25 part 1?

  • Anonymous Feb 16, 2018 @ 15:36

    Use our own judgments. Some answers here aren't accurate, I think. Still, thank you for these…at least we have some patterns of possible questions. ^^

    • Anonymous Sep 26, 2018 @ 16:16

      Actually in actual board some questions do not really fit to the thought because according to my past review center people behind the LET questions right answers depends to the person who made the questions wether it's wrong or right.Good luck n lng po for LET takers just believe in yourself that you will past the exam.

  • Unknown Jun 29, 2018 @ 8:08

    But what is the answer # 25 pls. Thanks

  • Unknown Aug 6, 2018 @ 16:50

    Number 22 should be B. In Law and Order Orientation, it is essential to respect authority.

  • Unknown Sep 27, 2018 @ 8:06

    #22 and #21 should be both B.

  • Unknown Apr 1, 2019 @ 10:54

    What is the answer of #2?

  • Hales Dec 7, 2019 @ 12:54

    This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing blog that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. Baby Gate

  • Ondong Jan 15, 2020 @ 8:02

    Sa 21 po ay b, kasi maliban sa edad na secondary, ang role confusion kc, nag alanganin san banda supposed to be, kaya ang tanong between friends and his parents. Sa 22 naman, ay b rin kc respect for authority ang pinag usapan, d po contract. Dapat po, social order ang nilagay na sagot. sa number 5 naman, ay letter A, development. Kc 69 years old po. Development is either increased or decreased. From maturity of our aged which is 61 to 65, mag dedecreased na po tau, kaya ang iba, pag walang scaffolding, tend to bend down their bodies

  • Unknown Apr 20, 2020 @ 16:33

    Hello please check answer no. 10. the CA is A

    • Anonymous Sep 27, 2021 @ 13:41

      I think the CA is letter B. Why? If you will analyze the sentence – Train up a child in the way he should BE- be is the clue. so meaning the environment of the child really affects him.
      For me lang.

  • Anonymous Jun 14, 2021 @ 16:31
