3.The relation  between variables  can be  verified and tested  fro significance with  the help of the  correlation analysis. The effect  of correlation  is to  reduce  the range  of uncertainty of our  prediction.

4. The coefficient  of correlation is a relative measure and we  can compare the  relationship  between  variables which are  expressed in different units.
