Read the passage given below and answer the questions based on your understanding of the passage. Research Methodology is a way to systematically solve the research problem. It may be understood as a science of studying how research is done scientifically. In it, we study the various steps that are generally adopted by a researcher in studying his research problem along with the logic behind them. It is necessary for the researcher to know not only the research methods/ techniques but also the methodology. Researchers not only need to know how to develop certain indices or tests, how to calculate the mean, the mode, the median or the standard deviation or Chi-square, how to apply particular research techniques, but they also need to know which of these methods or techniques, are relevant and which are not and what would they mean and indicate and why. Researchers also need to understand the assumptions underlying various techniques and they need to know the criteria by which they can decide that certain techniques and procedures will be applicable to certain problems and others will not. All this means that it is necessary for the researcher to design his methodology for his problem as the same may differ from problem to problem. For example, an architect, who designs a building, has to consciously evaluate the basis of his decisions, i.e. he has to evaluate why and on what basis he selects particular size, number and location of doors, windows and ventilators, uses particular materials and not others and the like. Similarly, in research the scientist has to expose the research decisions to evaluation before they are implemented. He has to specify very clearly and precisely why decisions he selects and why he selects them so that they can be evaluated by others also. From what has been stated above we can say that research methodology has many dimensions and research methods do constitute a part of the research methodology. The scope of research methodology is wider than that of research methods. Thus when we talk of research methodology we not only talk research methods but also consider the logic behind the methods we use in the context of our research study and explain why we are using a particular method or technique and why we are not using others so that research results are capable of being evaluated either by the researcher himself or by others.
6. Research Methodology means
i. The science of studying how research is done scientifically.
ii. A study that exclusively concerned only with the methods of research.
iii. The branch of knowledge that involves the study of various steps to be employed by a researcher.
iv. An approach to systematically solve the research problem.

ii, iii, iv are true, i is false
i, iii, and iv are true, ii is false
ii, iv, iii and i are true
i, iii and iv are false, ii is true

7. What do knowledge of research methodology envisage ?
Researcher knows all research methods
Researcher knows statistical tests to be done
Researcher knows relevant statistical tests and their relevance and he is able to decide on the use of certain techniques
Researcher should know why the research study has been undertaken

8. Why the scope of Research Methodology is wider than research methods ?
Research methodology considers various methods for completing the research
In research methodology the logic behind using a specific method is detailed.
Research methods guide the researcher only partially
Research methodology not necessarily gives a back ground for the researcher to finalize a project

9. How to expose the decisions of a researcher regarding research methods for evaluation by others ?
i. By providing the details of statistical tests
ii. By clearly and precisely specifying the decisions on methods
iii. By specifying why he has selected a method
iv. By describing the research design

i and ii
ii and iii
iii and iv
iv and i

10. It is imperative for a researcher to design the methodology for his research. Why ?
Methodology differs from problem to problem
Researcher should know which are the methods relevant are for him
Researcher should know the assumptions underlying the various techniques used in his research
All the above
