 Question [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER]
Mental age can best be defined as:
 A A method of estimating a child’s intellectual ability by comparing the child’s score on intelligence tests and his or her age B A method of estimating a child’s intellectual ability based on raw scores on intelligence tests C Comparing a child’s actual age with his or her computed age D Basing a child’s age level on his or her scores on a standardized test E Charting a child’s age based on the level of correct responses on an intelligence test
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -mental age, intelligence test score, expressed as the chronological age for which a given level of performance is average or typical. An individual’s mental age is then divided by his chronological age and multiplied by 100, yielding an intelligence quotient (IQ).

Detailed explanation-2: -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-3: -Intelligence has been defined in many ways: higher level abilities (such as abstract reasoning, mental representation, problem solving, and decision making), the ability to learn, emotional knowledge, creativity, and adaptation to meet the demands of the environment effectively.

Detailed explanation-4: -What are IQ tests? A typical IQ test consists of taking various tests measuring intelligence including; spatial recognition, short-term memory, mathematical ability, and analytical thinking.
