    The true answer is " to change the course of history" .
    Besides, "homework" is uncountable.

    I'm sure you know the rules by now, JustAlilbit, we don't do homework for people.

    Have you read posts #4 and #5, Mohammadhelmi?

    ps. It is not common for homework to be used countably, but it can be.

    This is three times in a row that you've merely plagiarised a correct answer from somewhere in the thread and posted it as your own. I haven't bothered checking further back.
    Is this your only trick?

    This is a good idea. But as we non-native English speakers have come to learn English, it is always a good habit for English teachers to point out all the mistakes a thread starter has made. Sometimes I think foreigners are too polite. More importantly, when we are chatting in an online forum and you point out others' mistakes, it causes no embarrassment.
