1. Copying and pasting is not working. You'll need to type your question in by hand.
2. Make sure you include YOUR THOUGHTS, too -- don't just post the assignment and expect that someone here will do it for you. We are happy to help, but you need to indicate what YOU THINK in order for us to help you.
