Step 1
In this question, we have to tell which option is correct about the correlation study,
Step 2
A correlation coefficient is a method to measure how two variables are related to each other and also what kind of relationship is there between these two variables. Correlation study is helpful when the data is in numerical form and for the categorical form data, we use the chi square distribution access the association. Correlation does not compare the means of two or more groups as well it does not manipulate the independent variables. Therefore, Option A is correct “assess the association between two interval measures”
Step 3
Option A is correct “assess the association between two interval measures”

When two targets are presented close together in a rapid visual stream, the second target is often missed. Psychologists call this phenomenon the attentional blink (AB). A study published in Advances in Cognitive Psychology (July 2013) investigated whether simultaneous or preceding sounds could reduce AB. Twenty subjects were presented a rapid visual stream of symbols and letters on a computer screen and asked to identify the first and second letters (the targets). After several trials, the subject's AB magnitude was measured as the difference between the percentages of first target and second target letters correctly identified. Each subject performed the task under each of three conditions. In the Simultaneous condition, a sound (tone) was presented simultaneously with the second target; in the Alert condition, a sound was presented prior to the coming of the second target; and in the No-Tone condition, no sound was presented with the second target. Scatterplots of AB magnitude for each possible pair of conditions are shown below as well as the least squares line for each. a. Which pair of conditions produces the least squares line with the steepest estimated slope? b. Which pair of conditions produces the least squares line with the largest SSE? c. Which pair of conditions produces the least squares line with the smallest estímate of σ?

Whether the given study depicts an observational study or a designed experiment and to identify the response variable.
The study is conducted to compare the battery lives of a brand-name battery and a generic plain-label battery in digital cameras. For this purpose, 30 digital cameras are randomly selected and divided into 2 groups, one of the groups uses the brand-name battery while the other one uses the generic plain-label battery. In both the cameras, pictures are taken under identical conditions by keeping all variables, except the battery-type, in control.
