[SPSS - T-Test] - understanding how to approach a question

#1
Hello,

I have I inputted my data into SPSS.

This is the question that I have been given:

Compare the QABF attention(interval data)scores and demand(interval data) scores of people with a diagnosis of FXS and those with any diagnosis.
Are people with FXS more likely to have lower attention than demand scores?

I'm not sure if a t-test is the right way to approach this question and whether it should be an unrelated t-test that compares the demand scores for participant with FXS and another diagnosis and then a seperate test for the attention scores for participant with FXS and another diagnosis.

Also could you give me some guideance of what descriptive and inferential statistics I could use?

Thank you

According to the quesiton it looks like to compare the mean scores of demand with the mean scores of attention for the same group of people, the FXS. Hence, it is a paired t-test.
The question is a bit vague and perhaps you could provide us some more information.
