**Analytic-deductive type of inquiry**focuses on a

specific theme rather than general idea. It consists of logical consistencies

where only one solution or answer to a problem is expected. This approach is

some time called to-down approach as it originates from general hypothesis to a

particular topic by reducing its assumptions and hypothesis. At the end of the

enquiry there is testing on the acquired hypothesis to do observation for the relevant

theory. At the end of the observation a conclusion is acquired through testing

the specific data from the original theory. This enquiry is also called narrower

natured theory as compared to inductive consensual one as it is mainly related

to the testing of hypothesis again and again till a short and concise theory is

produced. Some numerical calculations are done by using mathematical formulas

where as inductive-consensual is apposed to it. This enquiry focus on objective

approaches because facts are collected and analysed to reach to the solution.

As compare to the above enquiry this enquiry has less

chance of errors in finding the solutions because this used mathematical

calculation to sort out a problem. Similarly it has some disadvantages, so some

experts this enquiry has no flexibility in it nature by using maths in decision

making specially the case or solution is applied to other problems and would be

incompatible. In such situation one case can only be applied the issues of the

same nature, this create rigidity. Another disadvantage is the accuracy which main

base on the person capability, if he is well skilled the more accuracy would be

there in finding if not, mistakes can take place. This is called human formed

errors occurrence, and this enquiry has such drawback. In some case the

decision maker is confused in selecting the appropriate formula which causes

wastage of time. This formula in my opinion is not recommended in finding

solution more than one problem, means where the same theory is applied to

different cases. However in certain case where accurate and limited information

is required, then this enquiry mode would best fit to reach to the conclusion.
