I would like to make my research question and the 3 or 4 sub-questions. I’ve made them but I just want to double check with you. there are 3 main topics I can choose from them which are: 1) Health services 2) Health and the internet· 3) Food and nutrition in society· I’ve chosen Health services as I study Paramedics. I’ve written the main question and the subs but I’m not sure if I did it write or not, and I also couldn’t do the narrowing and explain the purpose. please find the materials for this query, the worksheet that has to be filled out under the name of (ST2122 A1 Research Q Development Worksheet_ v1.15(1)) and also my previous work. all uploaded. regards.

Topic Selection and Narrowing
Which of the 3 broad topics assigned this semester interests you and would keep you motivated over the next 8 weeks?
How would you narrow it to make it manageable and researchable?Identify at least 2 ways to narrow the topic.
I have mapped my topic (Adult’s awareness and access of paramedic’s health services) and I came with many sub topics for example,communication, services, access, knowledge….
I have made four sub-questions from the result of the map that mentioned above.
