Well I just find it a tricky question, hah. Simply because I only get 2 markings so I fundamentally have 1 chance of correcting it before the final marking and what I had already written appareantly didn't elaborate on it enough...hence I am asking for your knowledge too so I can combine them. Thanks.

Well then tell me what you already wrote I'll get in trouble if I just give you the answer, I already have a warning to my name lol :).

Well I don't have an elaboration apparently. So what i've written won't enable you to add further information, if you know what I mean. Simply because you may mistakenly rewrite what I have got and I don't want that hehe.

What's the point in this forum if the helper isn't going to provide a part of his/her knowledge..for something simple but misleading.
