    1) Ordinal. You can order the dates (eg: 6/7/2015 comes before 6/8/2015) 2) Nominal. The numbers are simply names. Ways to ID the player. You cannot do math on the numbers. 3) I agree. You can order the planets (mercury, venus, earth, mars, etc etc...) 4) This is actually ratio. We can do math on the distances, intervals make sense, and there is a 0 that makes sense. 5) Correct. Similar to #4 6) This seems too vague. Did you mean the waiting TIME? If so, then that would be ratio (similar to #4 & #5) 7) Correct. You can order the grades as Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, Senior 8) Correct. Similar to #4, #5, and #6 9) You can order the longitudes, and it makes sense to do math on them. So it's actually ratio 10) Agreed. Just like with #2, these numbers are basically a "name" or ID for any given person.
