Textbook Problem

Four scales of measurement were introduced in this chapter: nominal, ordinal, interval, and ratio.

**a.**What additional information is obtained from measurements on an ordinal scale compared to measurements on a nominal scale?**b.**What additional information is obtained from measurements on an interval scale compared to measurements on an ordinal scale?**c.**What additional information is obtained from measurements on a ratio scale compared to measurements on an interval scale?

**a.**

To determine

The additional information obtained from measurements on an ordinal scale compared to measurements on a nominal scale.

Explanation

**Justification**:

In nominal scale of measurement, observations are just categorized as per names. But in ordinal scale of measurement, observations can be ranked in terms of direction to form an ordered series...

**b.**

To determine

The additional information obtained from measurements on an interval scale compared to measurements on an ordinal scale.

**c.**

To determine

The additional information obtained from measurements on a ratio scale compared to measurements on an interval scale.
