Answer:

A problem statement is a broad overview of the questions that will be addressed in a given area of research. It outlines the description of the issue(s), includes a vision, suggests the method(s) used to solve the problem, and provides a hypothesis. It highlights the need to conduct the research by identifying the gap between an ideal situation and the reality.

It will not be possible for me to give specific examples related to your topic. For that, you will have to conduct a thorough literature search on your research topic. This will help you identify the gaps that previous research has failed to address. While you look at literature, you will also be able to identify problem statements in other papers and that will give you a fair idea about how you can write the problem statement in your thesis.
