So this is not even a homework question ... It is a TEST question. And you expect anyone here to help you?

Good Luck in your test

Per the LQ Rules:

"Do not expect LQ members to do your homework - you will learn much more by doing it yourself."

If you are unhappy with your instructors you might want to transfer to another class or work with a tutor, but either way you will need to do your own work. -- J.W.
