Sorry, Queeniepie,

But not all of us know when Thanksgiving is..

Who Barack Obana is (or care) (to both)

I'm guessing you're fairly young and you've just scanned this in from a test paper and hoping you'd get an easy answer....

I suggest sitting down with parents and asking for similar statements and ask them to explain it to you.

i.e. Brainden is for help and assistance only.

Therefore, Brainden is not expected to give you the answers. YES

Brainden provides some examples that may help. YES

Brainden will help you cheat on homework. NO

It should be common sense, but I gave some facts. ;)
