How can statistics be used in research?
The role of statistics in research is to function as a tool in designing research, analysing its data and drawing conclusions therefrom. Most research studies result in a large volume of raw data which must be suitably reduced so that the same can be read easily and can be used for further analysis.
What is the analysis in a research paper?
Analysis is your opportunity to contextualize and explain the evidence for your reader. Your analysis might tell the reader why the evidence is important, what it means, or how it connects to other ideas in your writing.
Can a sentence start with but?
‘Contrary to what your high school English teacher told you, there’s no reason not to begin a sentence with but or and; in fact, these words often make a sentence more forceful and graceful. They are almost always better than beginning with however or additionally. ‘
Should I put a comma after but?
You should put a comma before but only when but is connecting two independent clauses. I would go for a walk, but it’s raining outside. That means they’re independent clauses, so you need to use a comma before but. When you don’t have two independent clauses, leave the comma out.
