//In the response of this query, I would like to suggest you to prepare a research paper on an issue of your choice. I am taking 'facilities in houses' as a research question. From my discussion, you can develop an understanding of writing a research paper. For example see the text below: //

On the other hand, there is another house at a price more than the previous one I.e. 245.4 (in thousand) but it has only 2 bedrooms and has the same area. Such a kind of distribution is not at all in proportion with the prices of the houses. This problem is important because people have to pay extra prices for fewer facilities, which leads to an unnecessary financial expenditure and fails to satisfy them for the prices they pay (Real Estate Business, 2008).
