Likert

#1
I collected data using likert scale for 8 statements (1-5). Which statistical analysis can I perform to confirm with which statement respondents agree the most?Thank you for help.

You mean, you have 8 Likert-type items, items with Likert response format
(not a Likert scale - a Likert scale consists of several Likert-type items which
together mean to measure one construct)? This would be a repeated-measures
design, and you can use tests for dependent samples. The dependent variable
is ordinal scaled, therefore you could use Friedman test for the global testing
(whether responses to the 8 statement differ at all). If the Friedman gives a
"statistically significant" result, then the sign test could be used for pairwise
comparisons.

With kind regards
