1. How is IQ determined, and what does it measure? (Be sure to pick the answer that says how it is usually  done NOW using a standardized test such as Stanford-Binet.) A) IQ is still based on mental age compared to chronological age, but now they also use "deviation IQ's"  measuring your score in relation to others who took the test.  B) IQ takes into account socio/economic/linguistic factors, and so your raw test result is compared to  people considered to have comparable backgrounds, and these statistics lead to a "comparison IQ."  C) IQ is no longer considered a useful measurement, so this question is meaningless.  D) IQ is an average a of the nine intelligences measured through nine subtests. E) IQ is based on your score compared to everyone who has ever taken any version of the test anywhere  in the world F) IQ is mental age compared to chronological age. So an IQ of 100 means your mental age and your  actual age are the same, and you are average.
