How many responses can a dichotomous variable have? Two

A researcher has divided the population into different categories on the basis of some common characteristics and then has chosen equal number of samples randomly from each category. Which kind of sampling technique has been used in selecting the samples? Stratified random sampling.

The impact factor is used in the context of Journals.

In a research, data on school enrolment, ratio, number of schools, income of parents, and employment status of parents have been studied. Such a study involves use of: Cross sectional data

If the null hypothesis is true, and the alternate hypothesis is rejected, then, it is : Good decision

Research plays an important role in formulating government policies: True.

Sampling techniques in which all the units of the population have an equal chance of selection is known as: Probability Sampling

Correct sequence: Literature review, Identify variables and formulate hypothesis, Sampling, Data analysis, Write research report.

Which is used to cite sources authored by more than two authors: et.al. ***

Which research leads to development of new theories? Fundamental research.

Continuous Variable: weight

How can a problem be selected for research? Reviewing available literature in library or online

Which sampling technique can be used when the population to be studied is heterogeneous but has some common characteristics? Stratified random sampling.

If the null hypothesis is true, but it has been rejected, this will be considered as a: Type I error

The cardinal sins of research conduct are: Falsification, Fabrication, Plagiarism.

Technique of probability sampling: Cluster sampling.

Variables can be ranked: Interval scale,ratio scale, ordinal scale.

“Male and female workers in India earn equal salary”, What kind of hypothesis is it? Null hypothesis

In which research, generalizations and interpretations are difficult to make? Exploratory hypothesis. *

The researcher intended to collect data from 200 respondents, but due to availability of lesser time and some other reasons, he was able to collect data from only 185 respondents. He then completed 15 datasets on his own, this will be considered as: Fabrication

Research should be generalizable means that: Conclusions drawn from sample applicable to larger population as well.

Secondary data: Historical documents, Public records, Reports of ministries and institutions, Unpublished diaries, letters, biographies.

Experimental research: Preexperimental research, True experimental research, Quasi experimental research.

With increase in sample size, what will be the impact on sampling error and systematic bias? Sampling error will decrease while systematic bias will increase.

On conducting a research repeatedly under similar controlled conditions, the outcome is similar every time, thus the research will be: Reliable.

In which sampling techniques, lottery method ** is used? Simple random sampling

Sources of primary data: Interview, Survey, Observation.

If the alternate hypothesis is true, but it has been rejected, this will be considered as: Type II error.

Research ethics: Honesty, Integrity, Confidentiality.

Difficulties faced in arranging workshop are: Research material is to be provided, Time consuming, adequate resources should be arranged so that all participants can participate and learn the skill.

If a study involves both qualitative and quantitative techniques, then it will be known as: Mixed research.

The quality of research is judged by: Methodology adopted in conducting the research **

Correct statements: A researcher is expected to be a wellread person, One research gives birth to another research, All research contribute to existing knowledge.

Sine Quo non (essential elements) of a good research is: A well formulated hypothesis.

The objective of research can be written in: Only statement form.

For a proposition to be true: It must be objective, It must be consistent, It must be testable.

Objectivity in research implies: Exact judgement of truth.

An important characteristic of research is reliability, which also indicates: Validity.

The purpose of literature review is: To familiarize researchers with work already completed and information already available on a topic, to communicate scope of further research, to help researcher in choosing unknown areas he/she will explore.

Purpose of writing research paper: to communicate research finding.
