Why are you unable to find the answers at least to a, b and c? There is a mountain of information available on the web and in books. This question just seems to ask us to do the googling for you? The scope of the question is too broad. –  Roger Attrill Jun 28 '11 at 16:48

Because the quantitative looks at metrics: absolutes that say this or that is better - that prove something - often used when comparing two comparable products or versions of a system, where as qualitative is about getting feedback to improve the system. Quantitative is about measuring the system so has less user input (because all users are different), qualitative is about getting feedback from real people. –  Roger Attrill Jun 28 '11 at 17:10
