For instance, in the event that the completion of the project boosted the tourism industry, the researcher may come up with a related theory that states: Development of an integrated cruise ship terminal ultimately boosts the tourism industry. Observation is the best data collection method and technique that best suits the research. This is because the researcher simply observes ongoing behavior in Broadway. The efficiency of the method arises as a result of the fact that all the topics of study do not need the interaction of the researcher with respondents. For instance, the researcher will simply stay in Broadway and observe whether the completion of the project will boost the tourism industry. The observation can be made by observing the number
