ABSTRACT

Anxiety is an emotional state that occurs as a threatening event. Anxiety, like worry, is a normal human emotion that tells us something is wrong or needs to change. In other words, Anxiety is defined as the mind and body’s reaction to any stressful, dangerous situations. It’s the state of discomfort or distress. It’s a feeling of fear that what’s will happen in near future. As we all can relate to the current situation of COVID-19 that produces apprehension about what will happen in future. It is unpleasant, but it may motivate one to keep our family safe and healthy. In the present study we try to achieve the following objective: to compare the anxiety status of young girls and boys during the COVID 19 pandemic. The present study consists of 60 participants out of which 30 boys and 30 girls staying in NCR, from the age range of 19 to 25 years selected with help of random sampling. Keeping in mind the objective of the present study, the following hypothesis was proposed for the investigation of empirical verification: there will be no difference between young boys and girls in respect to their level of anxiety. The data was analyzed by using t-test as statistical tool. Hence, null hypothesis is rejected at 0.05 level of significance. Thus, it was seen that girls are high on anxiety in comparison to boys.
