The adopted research strategy was the desk research strategy and the study was carried out by using two non-scientific methods, i.e., authority to a greater extent and logical beliefs to a certain extent. By adopting seven conditions 29 authoritative textbooks were utilized and from which a considerable number of applications were explored and recorded. They were logically classified into 15 applications which were arranged in the order of importance in terms of the intensity of usage. Finally, implications were given briefly.
