  1. The portion of the contract that would define it is missing. How is the farmer to be compensated for his work in raising that corn and cotton, maintaining the fences, etc.? Is he to be paid wages, keep a share of the profits from sale of the crops, get room and board, how?

  2. That's a tenant farmer contract.

  3. It could also be a sharecropper contract. The part of the contract copied here does not make that clear.

  16. There is a way to use these answers and still stick to your honor code, in my opinion. For example, my daughter and I use these to check her answers before we submit her test to see if they match. If they don't, then we know what she needs to work on before the next test, and it helps us figure out how to take better notes, without failing a test to do it.
