Is there a significant difference in the ___ of the respondents when grouped according to profile variables? 8. Based on the result of the study, what possible output on ___ can be developed?
Note: The statement of the problems (SOP) in green color refers to descriptive questions (this will apply Descriptive Statistics). The SOP in orange color refers to inferential questions (this will apply Inferential Statistics). Lastly, the SOP in blue color refers to the possible output of the study.

Hypothesis/ses: At the 0.05 level of significance, the following null hypothesis/ses will be tested: 1. 2. 3., etc.
