THE PROBLEM AND ITS SCOPE


INTRODUCTION
Rationale of the Study (See Chapter 5, pp 45-50)

(Have your introduction here 2-3 paragraphs or more.)


(Note:
1) In your entire text, use the third person to refer to yourselves:
The researchers/the group/etc. .
2) Construct declarative sentences in the text; do not shift to the
imperative or interrogative, except in the sub-problems.
3) Harmonize your verb tenses with the nature of the content of
the specific parts of the paper. Shift tenses only within a
discourse:
(a) If the statement is factual (simple present)
(b) If the definite past is obvious or accompanied by a
matching adverb
(c) If there is duration in a still existing event (present
perfect).
4) In the introduction:
a) use the present perfect (has/have + V-en) to show that
the topic has been of interest for some time;
b) use the simple present to express currency of
interest.
5) Use double space for the all three chapters.

(See pp 48-50)
(Note: In the rationale proper, use the simple present tense to
emphasize currency of
reason. )
