Quantitative data can be divided into smaller parts, where categorical data cannot.

They are all correct except years of education. If someone was attending the first semester of college, would you say he had 12.25 years of education?

Categorical data is what could be put into categories" countries, types of trees.

Quantitative has numerical values that could be averaged, etc. you are correct with your answer. And you could say that you have an average of 12.25 years of education.
