So, null hypothesis i.e. there is no variation between the male and female respondents with regard to the respective intelligence, is rejected and alternative hypothesis is accepted. Since the population variances are relatively not equal, the research should look at the ‘Equal variances not assumed’ row for the t-test results.

His/her multiple intelligence skills may bring drastic changes and positive impacts both in the library landscape and library services.
