    First --
    When you type in all-caps, two things happen:
    **it's harder to read, and
    **it's the online equivalent to SHOUTING (considered rude behavior).

    Please just type in regular mode, not with the Caps Lock feature turned on. Thanks.

    Second --
    What is your specific question?
    Keep in mind that Jiskha ...
    ... has no affiliation with any particular school or other institution, and
    ... doesn't do students' assignments for them, and
    ... doesn't have exam answers to give away and wouldn't do so even if we did!
