Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -For example, categorical predictors include gender, material type, and payment method. Discrete variables are numeric variables that have a countable number of values between any two values. A discrete variable is always numeric. For example, the number of customer complaints or the number of flaws or defects.

Continuous variables. These can have any value between a theoretical minimum and maximum, like birth weight, BMI, temperature, neutrophil count.

Detailed explanation-4: -Quantitative variables may be discrete or continuous.
