    Smile came up with a concept for

    Once she came up with a concept for her history assignment, she found it easy to write ten pages.


    Does the underlined part sound right to you? Does it refer to "had inspiration for" or "understood?" Thanks.

    It sounds fine. Either "a" or "the" could be used here. I would lean to using "the" personally since it is a specific idea for her assignment

    Concept means general idea

    So referring to this sentence, she may have had trouble at first understanding the assignment but once she thought about it for a while an idea came to her and it was no problem anymore.
