Rather than sitting around and stewing, you need to go and talk to people. Real people, face to face. Talk to your math teacher. Talk to your counselor.

IMO ... the 2nd and 3rd have a lot of overlap. I agree that what you've chosen is correct, PLUS the order of information you use inside that argument needs to be order of importance.

Repost - Geometry question
"please help me" posted this earlier: If m angle sign 1=37 degrees what is m angle sign 4 My answer: 43 degrees which is wrong. Correct answer: 37 degrees I don't understand how to do this.

What does your overall grade have to be to pass?

Yes, but "a milk" isn't correct(although lots of people make the error. Milk is a non-count noun, so "a" is incorrect with it. It's correct to say "a glass of milk" or "a carton of milk" or another expression that's similar.
