Prejudice is to discrimination as _ is to _.
  • a. affect; behavior
  • b. affect; cognition
  • c. cognition; affect
  • d. cognition; behavior


This is because  discrimination is the behavior or actions, usually negative, towards an individual or group of people, especially on the basis of sex/race/social class  and that prejudice includes all three components of an attitude (affective, behavioral and cognitive), whereas discrimination just involves behavior.
