Ans: Ordinal Scale
Eg: Likert Scale

Ordinal scales are typically measures of non-numeric concepts like satisfaction, happiness, discomfort, etc.

“Ordinal” is easy to remember because is sounds like “order” and that’s the key to remember with “ordinal scales”–it is the order that matters, but that’s all you really get from these.

b). How old are you?
Ratio Scale

Ratio scales are the ultimate nirvana when it comes to data measurement scales because they tell us about the order, they tell us the exact value between units, AND they also have an absolute zero–which allows for a wide range of both descriptive and inferential statistics to be applied. At the risk of repeating myself, everything above about interval data applies to ratio scales, plus ratio scales have a clear definition of zero. Good examples of ratio variables include height, weight, and duration.Data related to age, income, costs, sales, and market shares would be best gathered using a ratio scale where any type of statistical analysis can be performed.

c). Please rank the following activities in terms of your preference by assigning ranks 1 (most preferred) to 5 (least preferred).
ii. Watching television
iii. Dating
iv. Shopping
v. Eating out

Interval Scale
Also rank Order Scale

Nominal Scale
Giving number to a person doesn't mean anything

A nominal scale, like the description characteristic, is the most basic. The numbers (or letters or symbols) in a nominal scale only serve to identify objects, like gender classification. It does not matter if females are assigned a 1 or a 2 (or any other number, letter, or symbol), and order is not a factor.Having one Aadhar number twice the other doesn't mean anything they are just numbers
