The following exercise is in my statistics book, but do not have the answers. Seeking help to confirm and/or correct my answers about scales. Very confusing!

Classify the following: nominal, ordinal, interval, ratio

1. Your checking account number as a name for your account. Nominal (renaming)
2. Your checking account balance as a measure of the amount of money you have in that account. Ratio
3. Your checking account balance as a measure of your wealth. Interval
4. The number you get from a machine (32, 33,...) as a measure of the time you arrived in line. Ordinal
5. The order in which you were eliminated in a spelling bee as a measure of your spelling ability. Interval
6. Your score on the first statistics test as a measure of your knowledge of statistics. Ratio
7. Your score on an individual intelligence test as a measure of your intelligence. Nominal
