Read the given passage carefully and answer the questions that follow
In Skinner’s system, reinforcement is automatic, almost by definition. Perhaps the most
convincing demonstration of the automatic effect of a reinforcer is what Skinner (1948)
has called “superstitious behaviour”. In this situation, an event known to be reinforcing
is presented intermittently without respect to what the subject is doing. But if it is doing
anything (and this can be made likely through deprivation, etc.), the response just prior
to the delivery of the reinforcer is strengthened, as evidenced by an increase in its rate

of emission. The subject comes to “act as if” the response that has been fortuitously
strengthened somehow produces the reinforcement. This occurs even though the
reinforcer is actually delivered by a mechanical device that is in no way responsive to the
subject’s behaviour.
The automatic effect of reinforcement is also illustrated in Skinner’s effective techniques
of shaping behaviour. These procedures could hardly have sprung from a point of view
that regarded all behaviour as elicited. But with the organism viewed as “emitting” the
varied responses already in his repertoire, it was an easy step to conceive of shaping. If
the observer simply controlled the quick presentation of a reinforcer, then he could
strengthen any behaviour the organism happened to emit. Responses not in the
subject’s repertoire could then be built into it by appropriate arrangements of
environmental conditions and the successive approximation technique.

Q.46 The procedure of shaping a subject’s behaviour is related to his
A. Susceptibility
B. Desire for reinforcement
C. Responses already in his repertoire
D. Responses reinforced by approximation techniques

Choose the correct answer from the options given below:
1. A and B only
2. B and C only
3. C and D only
4. A and D only
Answer: 3. C and D only

Q.47 According to Skinner, the superstitious behaviour of individual is the
outcome of
1. Constant exposure to an event
2. Exposure to an event without regularity
3. Occasional exposure to an event
4. Natural exposure to an event
Answer: 2. Exposure to an event without regularity

Q.48 The delivery of the reinforcer gets strengthened due to
1. The subject involvement in the event
2. Increase in the rate of reinforcement
3. Factors such as deprivation
4. The use of a mechanical device
Answer: 3. Factors such as deprivation

Q.49 The responses that are not in the emission list of a subject, can be observed
by
1. Coercive measures
2. Creating suitable environmental conditions
3. Inhibiting his natural emission behavior
4. Using mechanical devices for reinforcement
Answer: 2. Creating suitable environmental conditions

Q.50 The example of a mechanical device reinforcing the subject’s behaviour
demonstrates
1. The automatic effect of reinforcement
2. The illusion of reinforcement
3. The discrepancy in subject’s behaviour
4. The belief that every reaction is an act of reinforcement
Answer: 1. The automatic effect of reinforcement
