Answer to question 3

Q 43: Option 4. The correct order is encoding (information from the surroundings), the storage (storing the required parts) and retrieval (retrieving the information when it is required)

Q 44: Option 4
Working memory holds data temporarily so that the brain can do something with the information. It is a part of short term memory


Answer to question 4

The correct answer to this question is Option D, this model is seen as knowledge in long term memory currently active and being though about. 

Option D is the correct answer because:

In the question all the statements about the Engle’s controlled attention model are correct except Option D. This model divides working memory into different components based on cognitive functions it also focuses on the control of attention. But doesn’t say that the model is a knowledge in long term memory.

Therefore based on the above information Option D is the correct answer.
