In essence, emotional intelligence is one's ability to identify the emotions of self, others and groups. Once identified, the person can/will then assess the emotions of the self, the other, or the group. After identification, the person will be able to control the emotions of the self, the other, or the group.

Therefore, the answer to your question is "A." Emotional intelligence has nothing to do with personality scores on IQ tests. The second option is not factual at all: not all highly intelligent people are emotionally imbalanced. The last option, women are too emotional to be intelligent, is not a fact either.

By simply eliminating the options which cannot be considered factual, one can conclude that "A" is the answer. Outside of that, emotional intelligence simply has to do with how one acts and reacts to those around them and the emotions which are being exhibited.
