All answers should be in your own words and source should be only the text book which I am uploading here.
Assignment answers shouldn’t be word to word from the text book or any other source.
The answers to the questions must also answer the question and not just be about the question.You need to fully and completely answer each question using the material from the text book. This may be, depending on the question, full sentences, point form and include diagrams.Below are the questions:
