  31. The behaviouralists stress just over numbers and Joyce Mitchell composes: "The behaviouralist is occupied with extraordinary numbers amusement actually and allegorically. In the previous occasion, he appears to trust that nothing is important unless it has been lessened to measurements or conditions. In the metaphorical sense, he is normal for the puzzles the guiltless particularly agents, with his exceptional type of enchantment and numbo enormous".

  39. (8) The behaviouralists overlook the investigation of the establishments and underline superfluously the behaviouralist impact: 

  40. The behaviouralists bind their review to the political conduct and overlook through and through the review political science is fragmented without the investigation of these things. Besides the behaviouralists. 

  41. Not just that while concentrate the voting conduct, they have not given any regard to the investigation of such variables as enrollment prerequisites and types of ticket since we need to drop those voters who are not legitimately enlisted and those votes which are not appropriately cast.
