Solution

  1. Verbal tests of intelligence use language (words or numbers) for measuring intelligence. In these tests, subjects are required to respond verbally to test items.
  2. E.g. Army Alpha Test, Wechsler’s Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS).
  3. Verbal tests are useful to measure higher mental abilities. These tests are also useful to differentiate between people having average intelligence and those having above-average intelligence.
  4. Verbal tests cannot be given to people having different linguistic backgrounds, illiterate people, and small children. Further, these tests are culture-bound and so, cannot be used in different cultures.
