If you are asked to prove the causal relationship (i.e. cause and effect) between two variables (i.e. between a certain medication and its effectiveness) in the highest degree of certainty, generally speaking, which is the BEST research method among the above three to be used? What are the rationales behind your selection? Why the other two methods are not as good or proficient for such purposes?  (Hints: Your response should not solely based on unsubstantiated personal opinion.
