Hello everybody!
What do they mean?
Basically, Quantitative is numerical data (numbers) and qualitative is written data. I always remembered them as Quan= number and QuaL= Language
3. Hey,
Qualitative means any data to do with words (Think : Qual = Quality) and Quantitive is any data to do with numbers (Think : Quant = Quantity)

Hope this helps and good luck with your exams!
