You have two variables in each example. Which is which? The term is dependent, not dependable.

An independent variable is the potential stimulus or cause, usually directly manipulated by the experimenter, so it could also be called a manipulative variable.

A dependent variable is the response or measure of results.

I. Dependent variable; Independent variable
II. Independent variable; Independent variable
III. Independent variable; Dependent variable
IV. Dependent variable; Dependent variable
