. Two hungry boys (A and B) enter a restaurant

 Two hungry boys (A and B) enter a restaurant and find a table decorated as follows:


Boy B starts salivating but not A. Explain the reason for this difference.



Best Answer

Salivation is an example of conditioned reflex that develops due to experience or learning. Saliva starts pouring when you chew or eat food. Therefore, this reflex will occur not just on the sight or smell of food. The brain actually needs to remember the taste of food. Boy B started salivating because he must have tasted that food prior unlike boy A.
