On 25


of May 2014 this research was conducted. The targeted audience were female category whose ages range from 20 to 30, some of them are studying in Abu Dhabi Women’s College and others are working in different companies. All participates were supposed to give the answer of the 10 questions.

Because the researcher targeting the audience relating to education department or the employees department would be more part in order to maintain the work. This is the process through which people would enjoying their way and maintain the work within the programmed sources. Throughout the system there would be more systematic approach to work out in this concern.

Collecting Data:

  • Survey Tools:

The survey tools which we are going to use would be more systematic in order to maintain the work. This is the process through which people are much peculiar in order to systemized and maintain the structure of the study. The online software is much reliable in our context to take out the answer and adhere it into the systematic approach which makes the system more prominent and useful in our study.

  • Reason of Choosing the Closed-Ended Question:

The closed ended questions have not vast definition in order to maintain the work. This is the style in which respondents have not have the chance to get the option and to get provide the irrelevant answer. The study is more focused and more organized through this way. This is the procedure to which people are much prominent and maintain the work.

  • Problem to Gather the Qualitative Data:

The qualitative data would be more difficult to collect and after facing these problems people are much systemized to entertain the factual way to prove his research work. All the female does not tell the right age and conceal their weight which was the biggest barrier in this concern. This is the problematic research work which maintains the status of the work in this concern.

  • Ethical Consideration:

In order to make the causes of the obesity that are also fast foods and soft drink, we are not supposed to take the name of the brand but generally considered the whole panorama of these kinds of things.

Two main Sources:

The two main sources which prominent in order to maintain the work and making this research to the completion of the task. The online software would be used in order to conduct the interview and other sources are used in order to maintain the work more peculiar. The other source which is used is internet and other cyber technologies which maintain our work more prominent and more fundamental. This is the programmed sources which pave the way to conduct factual research in more authentic way.

These sources are much relevant to conduct the research, but these sources does not only make the research more authentic but also helps to attain the exact way and make the research on the path which is quite relevant to focus on the given topic.

Time Framework:

The time in this research requires almost about 3 months. The systematic approach towards the tools and respondents to maintain the research more factual and qualitative would consume more time. It would be almost from March 2014 to June 2013. The idea was initiated in the month of March and presented in the final shape in moth of June. The closed ended questions and answers from the respondents take almost one and half month. Te composing of data and taking the data from other sources would also be the part of the system in order to maintain the qualitative work and make the reports and analysing data and provision of findings to provide the factual research work consumes more than 1 month.

Presenting Research:

This research is much prominent in this form which is both in the soft and hard copy. Soft copy are avail the users of cyber technologies and hard copy provides the information to the people who used to read in the black and white form. This is the progressive form of the system through which people are much keen to read our research who having keen interest to maintain their health and who are more health conscious .


  • To maintain the research work in this vast topic the survey of only few students and working ladies would not be enough to provide the effective result
  • The time is too short in order to provide the qualitative work and embrace many minds of the people (Trainer, 2010).
  • This research as concluded in the Girls College so girls are much hesitate to explore they name and all the information like weight and age in UAE.
  • The cultural barrier also comes when the specification of the girls would be the part of our research.
  • The researcher would not easily go to outside the nation and could not take the information from all the nations of UAE as it is more focused the capital (Trainer, 2010).
