STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

How many teenagers in my district goes to church and is interested in religion.

METHOD OF INVESTIGATION

The method of investigation I decided to use for my research is a questionnaire. I made the duplicates of the questionnaire to ensure that they could be distributed to every teenager in my district. The questionnaire is a suitable method as it gives the student time to formulate the questions clearly and concisely on paper therefore making them easily understood to whom ever is reading. Another advantage of the questionnaire is that it does not take a long time to be completed.
