Sources of Hypothesis

Hypothesis  may be developed from  various  sources. Some  of the important  sources are  the  followings:

1.A Hypothesis  Arises from  Intuition  These  hypothesis  have no  clear  connection  with the  large  body  of social  science. The  intuition is associated with an  individual who is  influenced by  environment.
