investigation or enquiry especially through search for new facts in any branch of
knowledge”. Research is a movement from the known to the unknown. It is

facts and reaching certain conclusions in the form of solutions towards the
concerned problem.

wants to know the characteristics of certain groups such as age, educational level,
