    Q: Briefly explain the role of Theory in research?

    In my opinion, role of theory in research can defined as ‘an explanation of observed regularities’ or a connection of what we see to what we believe. In research Theory used as tool to explain something or make sense of data. Theories are formulated to explain, predict, and understand phenomena and, in many cases, to challenge and extend existing knowledge within the limits of critical bounding assumptions. The theoretical framework introduces and describes the theory that explains why the research problem under study exists.
