Not necessary to show us your homework, but show us and show to your teacher if you try to do your homework by your own. I know the reason why your teacher did not give you the references, means that she/he wants you to be active reading your books or looking for another resources to find the answers. She/he wants you to be active, as well as us here, not just wait for answers from us
I'm agree with what sdekivit said. That's what I mean. When I was a student my teachers did the same to us. I think it's a good point so I apply it to my students too. But if you think my words are too harsh, you know what you should do
I didn't read all the questions, but 4 is D. How about I post my take-home exams on here and you guys do it for me? lol
