Round 1

Reviewer 1 Report

The paper is well organized and with the objectives clearly set out and an appropriate discussion of the methodology is opted. The collection and the use of the data is creditable and in the end the results and discussion are quite impressive. However, I found few minor Typo / formatting slip-ups as mentioned bellow.


References require minor revision as two different format styles are used to write down the name of the studies. For example, see lines 720, where Capitalize Each Word format style is used as opposed to Sentence case format, which is used for most of the references. Further, the same issue has been observed while writing the journal names. The author(s) are required to fix such issues for the sake of uniformity. Further, few incomplete references are also noticed.
