Posting homeworks and tests and just expecting OpenStudy to slave away at them for you isn't what the site is about. Ask 1 particular question. You are still supposed to be the one doing your homework, just with a little help on the side. Some of these works, like A Modest Proposal, are actually pretty easy and funny if you give them a chance.
