Let's create a simple questionnaire with 3 multiple choice questions with five answer choices each (see below). We will calculate the total score to determine how active a person is.How much time do you spend sitting each day?(a) 5+ hrs(b) 4 to 5 hrs(c) 3 to 4 hrs(d) 2 to 3 hrs(e) Less than 2 hrsHow often do you do sports and recreational activities?(a) Once or twice in a month(b) Once a week(c) Thrice a week(d) 5 days in a week (e) DailyHow much physical activity does your job require? (a) Not much(b) A moderate amount(c) Average(d) Intense(e) Very intensePoints: We will use the same points scale for all the three multiple choice questionsAnswer choice (a) - 1 pointAnswer choice (b) - 2 pointsAnswer choice (c) - 3 pointsAnswer choice (d) - 4 pointsAnswer choice (e) - 5 pointsWe will calculate the total score by adding the individual points for the 3 multiple choice questions. The total score would be between 3 and 15.
