Alfred Binet  The hardest test items included asking children to repeat back 7 random digits. He has received in turn a doctor. a lawyer. and then a priest. find three rhymes for the French word obéisance and to answer questions such as "My neighbor has been receiving strange visitors. What is taking place?" .

and named this ratio the intelligence quotient. . He took the mental age and divided it by the chronological age.William Stern  Stern looked at individual test scores as particular "mental ages" which could then be compared to actual "chronological ages" to determine a degree of advancement.
