I started the paper with a very short presentation so the reader can have an idea of what we are discussing.After that, I answered each question separately. As you can see I use headliners to differentiate between the 4 questions and make it easier for you to see that all the questions were answered.You requested the paper to be a minimum of 3 pages, but as you can see I wrote 4 full pages for you as that was the amount which I needed in order to be able to provide quality answers.I understand how important is to deliver quality, free of plagiarism papers. Due to that, work was fully written by me. As you will be able to see, the plagiarism report states that "Results: 0 matches in 0 sources". This means that it is all original.It was a pleasure working with you and I hope I will be able to offer my support once again in the near future.
