Correlation Coefficient
Which of the following correlation coefficient indicates the weakest relationship between two variables?
A. + 1.0
B. +0.4
C. -0.6
D. -1.0
As the answer according to book is B. + 0.4
because( The nearer to 0 the correlation coefficient the less correlation between the variables).
My question Isnt -0.6 also nearer to zero am confused in between these two values + 0.4 and - 0.6.

hÃ, SALAAM
+0.4 is more nearer to 0 than -0.6. +0.4 is just 0.4 away from 0 whereas -0.6 is 0.6 away from 0. I hope you understood.
