Instructions for Questions 71 to 75: Read the following passage and answer the five questions that follow:

The Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS) was administered to a sample of 300 subjects. The inter-correlations among all the subscales were obtained. Unities were retained in the diagonal spaces of the correlation matrix and it was factor analysed. Cattell's scree indicated two-factor solution. The two factors were subjected to varimax rotation. The two rotated factors were named as Verbal Intelligence and Performance Intelligence. The two factors, together, explained 62 percent of variance.

  1. Which one of the following method of factor extraction is likely to have been employed in the present work?

    1. Principal component analysis

    2. Principal axes factoring

    3. Maximum likelihood

    4. Unweighted least squares

    Answer: a

  2. The inter-factor correlation between the two rotated factors obtained in this analysis will be

    1. Greater than zero

    2. Smaller than zero

    3. Zero

    4. Zero or greater than zero

    Answer: c

  3. Cattell's scree is a

    1. Plot displaying variables using the first two factors as axes.

    2. Plot of the order of unrotated factors on X axis and eigen values on Y axis.

    3. Plot of the order of unrotated factors on X axis and the communalities on the Y axis.

    4. Eigenvalues on X axis and communalities on Y axis.

    Answer: b

  4. The factor-analytic model followed in the above analysis can be best labelled as

    1. Common factor model

    2. Confirmatory factor analysis model

    Answer: d

  5. In this research, the factor analysis has

    1. Established the predictive validity of the WAIS.

    2. Explored the dimensionality of the WAIS subscales.

    3. Provided evidence in favour of Spearman's two factor model.

    4. Demonstrated that all the WAIS subscales are highly internally consistent.

    Answer: b
