Correlation is a statistical measure used to determine the strength and direction of the mutual relationship between two quantitative variables. The value of the correlation coefficient lies between $-1$ and $1$. The regression analysis describes how an explanatory variable is numerically related to the dependent variables.

Both of the tools (correlation coefficient and regression analysis) are used to represent and analyze the linear relationship between the two quantitative variables. The relationship between variables can be observed using a graphical representation (visual) between the variables. One can also compute the strength of the relationship between variables by performing numerical calculations using appropriate computational formulas.

Note that neither regression nor correlation analyses can be interpreted as establishing some cause-and-effect relationships. Both correlation and regression are used to indicate how or to what extent the variables under study are associated (or mutually related) with each other. The correlation coefficient measures only the degree (strength) and direction of linear association between the two variables. Any conclusions about a cause-and-effect relationship must be based on the judgment of the analyst.

1. Thank you dear! for mentioning the error in quiz. Explanation is added to the questions.
If you find any other possible error in quiz or posts of itfeature.com, do let me know.

3. Q5. wrong
because
In the regression equation X is independent variable
it also called regressor, explanatory variable.

4. The process by which we estimate the value of dependent variable on the basis of one or more independent variables is called
