Unless you have a direct comparison, you cannot really tell if something works or not. Therefore in this case, RCTs are the ‘gold standard’ of evidence you are looking for.

If you are not looking at effectiveness, then RCTs will not be the ‘gold standard’ evidence for your question. If your friend in the example above wants to know which anti-malarial tablets are the most effective, you would need to look for an RCT which had compared one tablet against another.
