In this, the researcher will use the deductive approach which helps in collecting and gaining accurate knowledge for the development of research.

Research methods

It is that procedure that helps in collecting data that includes qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-method(Guerrero, et. al., 2019). Qualitative is considered as descriptive data collection technique and on the other hand, quantitative is determined as a numerical gathering of information for the research.
