What is the minimum number of participants required?

I am in Psychology SL. I just completed my experiment on a group of freshman, but I only received 7 usable responses. If I was to explain this in my study, would I be pardoned? If not, should I create fake some data?

You have to have at least 20 participants.

7 is a very small sample. Therefore, the experiment you did wouldn't have as much reliability and validity.

I guess you'll have to make up new "data" AHHAHA :P

Good Luck.
