The number of principal components that can be obtained for p number of variables is at most p, and the principal components are formed as linear combinations of variables (29).
Initially, when the outcome was generated from a linear combination of the covariates, or when the outcome was based on pairwise interaction among the covariates, all four methods (pairwise LR, LR, pairwise PS, and SCB) perform similarly.
