I've gone to the websites that i've received but i'm still not understanding the religion on hinduism.
I have to answer 3 questions only then write a paper. can anyone help me. where i can actually find these answers at least.
(1) Considering that Hinduism lacks a united belive system, what makes up the hindu religion?
(2)What are the cultural and societal influences that have made Hinduism vital to the region in which it originated?
(3)Explain the desire for liberation from earthly existence.
This site is the best I've seen that defines who's a Hindu. It points out that believing in Hindu sacred writings is a unifying and dominant part of its belief system.
Hindu and Indian history are so intertwined that it's difficult to separate which influenced which. Please check these sites for information for your second question.

In general, Hindus see life on earth as a chore and something to be endured. This concept is easy to understand when we consider the abject poverty and hard lives of so many Indians throughout history. As is true of the stated goals of many religions, including Christianity, Hindus see a perpetual life with the Brahman as the ultimate ideal.

This site will give you the answers to # 1. Be sure to click on the three links that explain the three aspects of the religion.
Look at the areas on how the society and the religion have developed a caste system.
This site will also help with that.
Hinduism, like Christianity and other religions not only has to do with this life, but with a "life" hereafter... they also believe in reincarnation. Check out the section on that.
