Page 9, questions

1. School Playground Actually, School Playground can be researched by people using Quantitative Approach. For example when we count how many people spend their time in school playground per day. It will prove us that numbers of visitors in school playground everyday. So, it will control the condition of school playground easily. We can use Snowball Sampling as method for this case.

2. Hospital Exactly hospital is particular place that is appropriate to use Quantitaive Approach for research. It can be realized from the administration side. Every hospital administration place for supervising the document and payment of patients. Labors always count the money of patients that visit the hospital. It will be easy when they use Quantitative Approach in this case. Furthermore, they can use Simple Random Sampling in this case, because it is suitable for the condition.

3. Supermarket Supermarket is the most appropriate place that has to use Quantitative Approah everyday. It is because supermarket connects to the accounting matter everyday. So, it will be effective if supermarket uses Quantitative Approach to supervise money administration. Then, we can use Simple Random Sampling as method.
