TU is a description that deepens the orientation of the theory that has been stated in the introduction covering various concepts, variables, indicators that will be used. TU is used as a tool to analyze research findings whether or not they are in line with other researches. Thus, research will open up the possibility of disproving theory, improving, or producing a new theory that is completely different from the existing one.

3. Research Methods : is used to solve problems, including the method of analysis. Image captions are put as part of a picture caption, not as part of a figure caption.
