Hello Anamika,

Well the first thing that I would like to know is “ABOUT YOU”. You tell me/us first, what you think is the best topic for you and why you want to go with it. About your present qualification and achievements, purpose of enrolling for Phd and what make you feel like to go for Phd are also important to know, so that, I as well as all other respective experts and senior can guide you accordingly that you and I both also knows how it is important to you.

About the topics/subject you have selected and have mentioned above are good with their own respective areas according to me but the most important thing, which I always emphasis and speaks about, and that all Phd aspirants /students need to remember always is the “PURPOSE & INTEREST” for Enrolling for Phd.

The very first step where one start thinking over going for Research Study is “PURPOSE & INTEREST” which is

Important and that directs the whole journey of Research Study. Purpose and Interest that makes one feel like to go for Research study builds based on required education, specialization and strong understanding of a subject with good interest, which actually helps student to get the interest alive always during the study. Moreover, the fact is that no one can even think about to go for Phd without INTEREST.

The topic/subject, which makes us, feels like we have good and strong knowledge and can entertain us whiles our study, need to go with. Entertain here which implies to keep our interest alive and encourage us putting our sincere and best efforts and we can reach the aim of it.

Now you say about you.

In addition to what Anil Arora has stated, you also need to ensure that you can get access to necessary data and have a supervisor that is interested in your research and capable of guiding you. I do not know how much you know about Research Methodolgy and the requirement for obtaining a PhD. One of the criteria is adding to the present knowledge bank and the other is about your reaserch being current (not outdated). One PhD graduate was not awarded the degree as someone else had already published on the same topic a couple of months earlier. Another researcher had to shelve the idea of writing up the thesis as (s)he failed to get the necessary access to "triangulate" the studies done.
Instead of seeking a ready made questionnaire, I suggest that you kindly study some recent literature on the topic of interest; this step is essential to know what others have done, how and why that way, and findout where the gap exists that needs further studies to be conducted.
