• Option : B
• Explanation : The independent variable is that which affects the dependent variable; so, it is manipulated and controlled and its effect on the latter is measured. So, the teaching method is the independent variable here.

• Option : D
• Explanation : The third generation of distance education uses ICT making its modules electronic and computer-based; and interactive as it enables communication between learners and teachers as well as learners and learners.

• Option : C
• Explanation : Writing is a means of verbal communication. The verbal (consisting of words) messages, therefore, must be clear, concise and correct to be effective; i.e., to be able to be decoded or understood as intended. So, the principles of effective writing are Clarity, Conciseness and Correctness. Stress on hyperboles, liberal use of adjectives and use of complex sentences, on the other hand, only confound the message.

• Option : A
• Explanation : A categorical proposition asserts a relation of inclusion or exclusion, complete or partial, between two classes (collection of all objects which have some specified characteristic in common)
While the quantity of a categorical proposition is determined by whether or not it refers to all members of its subject class (i.e., the proposition is either universal or particular in quantity); the quality is determined by whether the asserted class relation is one of inclusion or exclusion (i.e., the proposition is either affirmative or negative in quality- ARE or ARE NOT)
The four statements are: A, E, I, and 0
1. A-universal affirmative: All S is P.
2. E-universal negative: No S is P.
3. I-particular affirmative: Some S is P.
4. O-particular negative: Some S is not P.
