    Your choice is interesting but I disagree. Did you actually read it?

    Nuts to that answer. Do you read your text?

    And why is M guessing?

    No doubt because he DIDN'T read the text OR the question very well.

    I wonder if M will read and understand what bobpursley posted.

    I wonder if M has read and understood anything.

    Yes I did read the text thank you very much. I'm just a little confused and was asking for some help, not for a bunch of rude people to come and tell me that I haven't read my text book when I in fact, have read my text book.
