Would the quantitative data be: age, salary, temperature, and year of education and the categorical data be: countries and types of trees? Thanks.

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?

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.
