Final Answer :
Explanation :
Selecting a test that was normed with a group similar to the client helps to reduce cultural bias in testing. This means that the norms were established using a similar population, which increases the likelihood of fair and accurate results. Considering the client's comfort level with testing is also important, but does not directly address cultural bias in testing. Eliminating formal testing altogether or transferring the client to a counselor with a similar background are not practical solutions for eliminating cultural bias in testing.
