Final Answer :
Explanation :
Semi-structured interviews are less formal than structured interviews, provide open-ended questions, and allow counselors to tailor the interview to each client. Unstructured interviews are even less formal but do not provide any set questions or guidelines, which can lead to inconsistency in the interview process. Extended battery interviews are a series of tests or assessments, not an interview format.
