Please do not simply ask for answers to exercises or homework questions. If you do wish to ask about a question of this kind, please give your choice of answer and your reasons. Otherwise your question may be deleted.

Would respondents also please take care not to provide answers to homework, etc.

Many thanks!

DO NOT POST NEW, UNRELATED QUESTIONS IN THE SAME THREAD. PLEASE START A NEW THREAD FOR EACH NEW QUESTION.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please, when you are seeking help here, try to observe these basic forms of politeness:

1. Ask for help, and say "please." (example: "Please explain the difference between 'bring' and 'take'.")
Do not simply post the words you are asking about (example: "Bring and take"), and definitely
do not give us orders or assignments. (example: "Explain the difference between bring and take.")

2. If the question is from a homework assignment, try to answer it first yourself. We are not here to do your work for you, but we will be happy to tell you if you are right or wrong and to explain why.

3. Use correct capitalization and punctuation. Don't expect us to correct only the parts of the sentence that you care about and ignore other obvious errors!

4. Use real words, not abbreviations like "how r u?"

5. Typing in ALL CAPS is considered "shouting," and seems rude.

If you follow these guidelines, you are more likely to get timely, helpful responses. Thank you for your cooperation!
