    Normally, I don't help with homework, and this seems to be homework. It seems that the first part of the sentence is missing a word. What word should be there to make a reasonable sentence?

    Hello.
    I'm not really sure if it's homework or not, but it would be better for you to tell us what you think first.
    (I'm also interested in this question.)
