Hello Customer

I can help you with these questions.
Some of them are bit tricky for sure.
Do you have any deadline for them?
Also, which course/assignment/exam are these a part of?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

My response isn't showing up... I need ASAP. Psychology of Learning.

Expert:  Dr. Amit replied 3 years ago.
Well there are few things
1) Earlier the question heading said something like
And now after i have posted the reply it is showing "For Mr Glenn G ONLY"
If you want that specific expert to help you, i would opt out of the question.
So clearly clarify the same
2) You said something like "My response isn't showing up.." . can you explain which response you are talking about? I only see 10 questions in the main post.

Waiting for reply
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

My response to your questions weren't posting to you is what I meant. I don't care who helps me as long as they can help. But I've actually completed the test now, I couldn't wait too long. Please cancel my question.

Expert:  Dr. Amit replied 3 years ago.
As to the guidelines/rules regarding answering questions, are concerned, experts are not supposed to reply/help with questions where a customer specifically wants to work with an expert by naming him/her. So that is why i needed to mention that as earlier on there was no such name up there.

Anyway it is good that you completed the test. You are welcome in future too.
Sure, i will mark this question, for site support to cancel it.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

If you are available now, I have another assignment that you might be able to help me on...

Expert:  Dr. Amit replied 3 years ago.
Yes i am online now but i need to know about the assignment first, to let you know whether i can help with it or not.
It is a multiple choice one? I would prefer that.
Further is there any time deadline to it?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I just posted it to you. It is multiple choice. 2 hour time frame...

Expert:  Dr. Amit replied 3 years ago.
Yes, i got it.
Kindly reply there only for further correspondence.
