Suggested answer to exercise: Histogram for talking time, 1

Question 1: Is spontaneous talking time a qualitative or a quantitative variable? If qualitative, is it ordered? If quantitative, is it discrete or continuous?

Suggested answer

This is a quantitative variable, because it has a numerical value.

It is continuous, because any time between 0 and 1000 seconds could have been recorded.
