responses. Avoid using contractions, texting language, and ensure that words are used properly.
Edit your work. For this assignment, you will attach a MicroSoft Word document in the
dropbox within this folder; no other form of word processing is acceptable. If I cannot open
the assignment, it is an automatic F. The paper is Times-New Roman, 12-font, double spaced.
