Default Bleh, homework help?

Would anybody with a really critical, science-y mind be willing to give me a hand?

I have to come up with a strength and weakness for a study published this February about goats lol. I am dead tired, sick and just cannot for the life of me come up with something that does not relate to numbers (which we were told to avoid).

If anyone is willing to give me some ideas or even put me on the right track I can pm you the study. And I will also provide virtual cookies and many awesomely super vibes your way. Thanks!

I'm about to go to bed so I don't want to read it, but keep in mind that the weakness of most studies is that you can almost always find a flaw in the study design.

I totally understand, and thank you It's an animal behaviour course but we spend a lot of time on experimental design, hence the hw.

If you can fix it in the next hour or so you can PM me too. I'm tired and my experimental design knowledge is a little rusty, but I can give a stab at it.

Ok another question

I am supposed to identify the hypothesis, but the closest thing I can find is:

"We investigated social impacts on acoustic communication in goats, a highly vocal and social species with sophisticated cognitive skills. We recorded and analysed contact calls of goat kids to determine whether and when social group and kinship identity cues occur during development."

It sounds like more of an investigation than a hypothesis... Not sure what I should say they 'hypothesized', if that makes sense.
