I feel like there is a special word for this but I don't remember what it is.
Here is an example, a poll often has the following choices:
A) Strongly Disagree ... B) Disagree ... C) Agree ... D) Strongly Agree
And now take a look at the following set of choices:
What is your favorite fruit? A) Apple ... B) Banana ... C) Orange
Is there a word for the above set of choices? Notice that it is not a linear set of choices like the one above it.
Someone might say that Banana is in between Apple and Orange, but I want to respond with "those choices aren't linear, they are ____". What is a word that I can use to fill the blank?
