Question:

If a case can be placed in more than one code or category of a scale, the scale is not:

a. homogeneous.

b. discrete.

c. mutually exclusive.

d. collectively exhaustive.

Mutually Exclusive Events:


The mutually exclusive events, as evident from the name, are exclusive in nature, that is, they cannot occur simultaneously at a single point of time together.

Answer and Explanation:


If a case can be placed in more than one code or category of a scale, the scale is not mutually exclusive.

The case will be homogeneous when considered concerning the variation within the blocks or cases. Thus, it will be homogeneous.

This is not even a case of collectively exhaustive events since the events which are collectively exhaustive is the events that encompass or cover the whole set of possible values fo the experiment.

This is not even a case of discrete where the numerical values of the random variable are considered or where the events in a set are countable. The given situation is not related to it.

Option-C.
