This variable has no intrinsic order
 A DICHOTOMOUS VARIABLE B NOMINAL VARIABLE C ORDINAL VARIABLE D INTERVAL VARIABLE
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -A categorical variable (sometimes called a nominal variable) is one that has two or more categories, but there is no intrinsic ordering to the categories.

Detailed explanation-2: -It is sometimes called “named” data – a meaning coined from the word nominal. There is usually no intrinsic ordering to nominal data. For example, Race is a nominal variable having a number of categories, but there is no specific way to order from highest to lowest and vice versa.

Detailed explanation-3: -Nominal variables are labeled into categories that do not overlap. Unlike other data types, nominal data cannot be ordered or measured; it does not have equal spacing between values or a true zero value.

Detailed explanation-4: -A nominal variable is a type of variable that is used to name, label or categorize particular attributes that are being measured. It takes qualitative values representing different categories, and there is no intrinsic ordering of these categories.

Detailed explanation-5: -A variable measured on a “nominal” scale is a variable that does not really have any evaluative distinction. One value is really not any greater than another. A good example of a nominal variable is sex (or gender).
