Solution:
1) How might the research design itself affect the outcome of a nonparametric test?
The research design affects a nonparametric method to estimate the relevant subset of the proportions and apply our method to the data in our study. The non parametric doesn't find the error that occurs in the data so, it may affect the outcome of a nonparametric test.

2) How might one ...
