I would like ask again,
because I cant find the answer

I have such problem:

My data containing 4 variables (A,B,C,D) and are completed from 4 samples. Each of matrix is such:

        A   B   C   D
A     1   ab   ac   ad
B     ab  1    bc   bd  
C     ac   bc   1   cd
D     ad   bd   cd   1

My hypothesis are that

ad is the strongest correlation for A and for D (sign doesn't matter) bc is the strongest correlation for B and for C (sign doesn't matter)

across samples.

Is it possible test these hypothesis?

Any help would be appreciated
