Hi,

I will post the answer asap

Thanks
Expert:  Steve replied 3 years ago.
Since IQ is a quantitative variable (continuous) its scale can be Interval or ratio level

The difference betwween ratio and Interval level is that the ratio level needs a clear definition of 0.

If we allow a person to have a 0 IQ the answer is Ratio scale

If we suppose that nobody has a 0 IQ (that makes sense) the answer is Interval scale

Thanks

Just so I am clear, will you please tell me the underlying variable of IQ or intelligence (2nd part of the original question)?

Is this variable quantitative?

Feels like the professor is asking the same question twice
