The established position that one occupies within a social structure and that carries with it a degree of prestige is called a:
1. Status 2. Status set 3. Role 4. Role Set

I know it is status but I am confused between Status and Status set. I think it should be status set right. Pls help

You're right, it's status.

This site explains the difference between status and status set.

As per the Link answer should be status right as question didn't specify how many statuses Am I correct

• Matt -

You're right. I think the definition you were given matches almost exactly with the site's definition of status. It says nothing about many statuses.

Thank You
