Good morning Zariad,

Could you tell me if there is any particular word or page length required for the project?

Speak to you soon,
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
There is no word or page length required for this assignment, but answers must be substantive, thorough, clear and concise. Each aspect of the question must be answered.
Expert:  Dr. Steve replied 2 years ago.
Dear Zariad,

I would estimate that the word total would be in the area of 800 to 1,200 words for the responses to the 11 questions, which would mean that the cost of the completed assignment would be between $80 and $120, although I could keep the responses within whatever word range you would like.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Are you saying a total of 800 to 1200 words?

Expert:  Dr. Steve replied 2 years ago.
Yes, I think the 11 questions could be responded to concisely enough to put the answers into a report of that length.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Okay that's fine.
Expert:  Dr. Steve replied 2 years ago.
Okay. I will be sure to have the report posted by the 11th.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I'm a little confused because I didn't go the normal route, so what do I do now. Do I post the questions to you as usual.
Expert:  Dr. Steve replied 2 years ago.
You will not have to post the questions again as I already have them on my computer; just make a post for the same dollar amount as this posting saying "this is for Dr. Steve" and I will respond to let you know that I received it.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The $ amount being $80 - 120.00?
Expert:  Dr. Steve replied 2 years ago.
You can make the original post for $40 and once the report is completed we will be able to determine the total -- as we do not yet know what the total will be, although it will not exceed 1,200 words.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Okay.
Expert:  Dr. Steve replied 2 years ago.
Okay.
Expert:  Dr. Steve replied 2 years ago.
Dear Zariad,

In regard to question 1b. "Define and describe the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the EPA's role in the EPA process." Should the question actually read: "Define and describe the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the EPA's role in the EIS process."?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No it states EPA'S in the EPA Process. Not sure if the professor made ab error.
Expert:  Dr. Steve replied 2 years ago.
Okay, I will work with the intent of the question rather than the way it is stated.

Thank you for your message.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
You're welcome! !!
Expert:  Dr. Steve replied 2 years ago.
I will have the completed project posted within the next 1/2 hour.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Okay... Thanks.
