9. From the list given below identify those questions which are called process rather than content based questions?
(i) Convergent questions
(ii) Divergent questions
(iii) Fact based questions
(iv) Concept based questions
(v) Open questions
(vi) Closed questions
Choose the correct answer from the options given below:

  • Option : D
  • Explanation : Process questions are designed to test the depth of subject knowledge and ability to analyze how the various components (i.e. processes) of a system contribute to create the whole; and are almost always chronological or linear and involve multiple, sequential steps.

Content based questions are convergent, fact based and closed questions.
