Mental age / by chronological age X 100 =
 A IQ B EQ C Mental Age D WAIS
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -An individual’s mental age is then divided by his chronological age and multiplied by 100, yielding an intelligence quotient (IQ). Thus, a subject whose mental and chronological ages are identical has an IQ of 100, or average intelligence.

Detailed explanation-2: -The term ‘IQ’ was coined in 1912 by the psychologist William Stern in relation to the German term Intelligenzquotient. At that time, IQ was represented as a ratio of mental age to chronological age x 100. So, if an individual of 10 years of age had a mental age of 10, their IQ would be 100.

Detailed explanation-3: -Let’s say the individual being tested is 23 years old. The psychologist would first take the individual’s IQ score and divide it by the standard of 100 for a result of 1.2. Then the psychologist would multiply the answer by the person’s chronological age of 20 to get a mental age of 24.

Detailed explanation-4: -a numerical scale unit derived by dividing an individual’s results in an intelligence test by the average score for other people of the same age. Thus, a 4-year-old child who scored 150 on an IQ test would have a mental age of 6 (the age-appropriate average score is 100; therefore, MA = (150/100) × 4 = 6).

Detailed explanation-5: -The IQ of person is given by the formula, IQ=mc×100, where m is the mental age and c is the chromological age. If 80≤IQ≤140 for a group of 12-year children, find the range of their mental age.
