Answer:Level of measurement=ordinal level

Average mean cannot be calculated for ordinal type of data.

Step-by-step explanation:The level of measurement for mood levels is ordinal level because there is ordering in the data. It means that 0,1,2 represents the ranking of mood level from bad to good.

Furthermore, the average calculated for mood level 0.9 doesn’t meaningfully represents the data. The average can’t be interpreted in the context.
