On conducting her study the next step she would take would:
a. Identify and clarify the problem b. Review the literature of the study c. Formulate the hypothesis d. Design your framework

On gathering information on her study, she formulated the hypothesis There is the same level of blood sugar and blood pressure after lemon grass and ginger extract administration. This can be classified as:
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Simple Complex Non-Directional Directional Alternative Null
2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 4, 6 5 5 6

a. b. c. d.

She also formulated another hypothesis: The higher the volume of lemon grass extract the lower the blood pressure. As a novice researcher you could identify the correct type of research hypothesis:
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Simple Complex Non-Directional Directional Alternative Null
1, 3, 5 2, 3, 5 1, 4, 5 2, 4, 5
