You should start with the basics of group theory: the definition of a group, subgroup, Lagrange's theorem, for example. If you don't know what a subgroup of order 2 is, then you'll never find one.

I don't think there is anything confusing about the question if you know what the definitions are.

First, identify the identity element in the group. Actually, first, what are the elements of the group? What is the Cayley table (or multiplication table) for the group? If a set with 3 elements is too big, try a set with 1 element, then 2 elements. Just take two elements in the group and compose them, see what happens.
