The following assertion and reason relate to World War II. Read the assertion and
associated reason and then choose a corresponding letter (A-E) to indicate whether the
assertion and/or reason is/are true.

Assertion

Japan’s lack of raw materials was a cause of World War II in Asia.

Reason

Japan lacked natural raw material except for small deposits of coal and
iron.

A

Assertion is true and reason is true and the reason is a correct explanation of the
assertion.

B

Assertion is true and reason is true but the reason is not a correct explanation of
the assertion.

C

The assertion is true but the reason is false.

D

The assertion is false but the reason is true.

E

The assertion is false and the reason is false.

Assertion-reason questions are similar to multiple true-false questions.

LIKERT SCALE QUESTIONS

This type of SRQ was named after Rensis Likert who invented the scale in 1932. It is
widely used within questionnaires to gauge respondents’ attitudes. The classic Likert
scale consists of five possible responses:

1. Strongly disagree

2. Disagree

3. Neither agree nor disagree

4. Agree

5. Strongly agree

Some psychometricians add or remove options (the neutral option – “neither agree
nor disagree” – is often removed).
