  6. Your school program is in error. R is medical. The links we posted are from the Library of Congress. However, if the education program you are using for "school" says it's "reference", then that will be the only "correct" answer, even if the program is incorrect. Sorry 'bout that.

  7. Then the school must be using the Dewey Decimal System.

    If you had told us that in the first place, we could have sent you the correct link!
