Major Comments

  1. Very important part of any research study is objective. This paper is not framed with any research objective it seems. There is no any objective of the study in any part of the paper. Without objective a research study will not be a complete one. So, the author needs to add primary and secondary objectives in the paper.
  2. There is no information on the research methodology used for the study. Researcher should concentrate on this part and give the methodology of selecting this particular topic.
  3. There is no information on data collection, period of study, techniques used for collecting the data, footnote and findings for the study. The author should focus on the above mentioned parts which are mainly needed for a research study.
  4. There was no mention of the limitations of the study, one of which is the apparently high dropout rate.
  5. Researcher can be highlight the research gap and pave the way for future research.

Minor Comments

  1. In abstract under methods and tools it is stated that ‘500 male subjects from….’ But it is ‘500 male students from…..’ correction should be carried out.
  2. Introduction part of the study is not fulfilling its part. Detailed introduction regarding the title can be given.
  3. Some keywords can be added below to the abstract which are being the important point discussed in the paper.
  4. For every table of analysis source of computation can be added.
  5. Instead of giving reviews of previous studies after interpretation of each analysis it can be separated by the heading ‘reviews of related literature/reviews of literature’.
  6. For every reference there should be a footnote in the relevant pages.
