Comparing models with binary DV PreviousNext

I regress a binary DV on four independent continuous latent variables. I a first step I calculated 4 single logistic regressions. Afterwards I estimated a multiple regression model where all four predictors explain the binary DV.

a) How can I compare models? I think that BIC is not appropriate because the number of parameters change between the single and multiple regression model, correct?
b) Can I select the models based on the LL values in this case? How is this done?
c) Is there a reference on the fact that Mplus does not report relative model fit for models with logistic regressions? I know why that happens, but I do want to make that clear to potential reviewers.

Thanks in advance!

a) BICs are comparable because you have the same DV conditioned on different covariates.

b) Use BIC

c) No.
