    Hi littel angel,

    Well, if it's too late --before your exam -- to ask your teacher for clarification, then why not ask your fellow students for their input? Perhaps they can share their notes with you.

    Good luck!

    thanks a lot Monticello for your care , but my fellow are worse , I asked them and they have no idea or just little ideas but I found in an article that conversational code-switching is mixing tow varieties with equal position and code-switching is mixing tow varieties with no equal position and I think it is the answer

But I found in an article that explains that conversational code-switching is mixing tow two varieties with equal position, and while code-switching is mixing tow two varieties with no equal position. And I think it this is the answer.
    Hi littel angel,

    Good! I hope that this extra effort of research pays off for you on your exam.
