The next image is also very familiar to her, but she says, "pencil, uh...uh...no...uh". She struggles and wants to write down the word instead. She does not come up the answer verbally, but she is able to write "cat", for the image of a lion. You next, show her an apple and she gets so frustrated that she will no longer participate in the test.
