    I don't think it's right for someone to complete that for you, quite unfair on them.

    I can help though.

    The whole point of this exercise is to examine your understanding of these terms that you need to place in the text.

    So, which of these terms do you not understand?
    1. Choice
    2. consciousness
    3. ethnographic
    4. free will
    5. interpretations
    6. interpretivist
    7. objective
    8. positivists
    9. predictable
    10. qualative data
    11. quantivite data
    12. reliable
    13. scientific
    14. social forces
    15. social interaction
    16. social meanings
    17. social surveys
    18. validity
