**multiple correlation is **a statistical technique that** predicts values of one variable on the basis of two or more other variables.** It is the correlation between the variable's values and the best predictions that can be computed linearly from the predictive variables.

The coefficient of multiple correlations takes values between .00 and 1.00; a** higher value indicates high predictability of the dependent variable from the independent variables**, with a value of 1 indicating that the predictions are exactly correct and a value of 0 indicating that no linear combination of the independent variables is a better predictor than is the fixed mean of the dependent variable.

**Conclusion: **Independent variables should correlate highly with the dependent variable and with one another for estimating the maximum value of multiple correlations. Hence,** option (1)** will be correct.
