    You posted the same essay above. Have you submitted it to your teacher? Has your teacher commented on it?

    Iereiy's second sentence says "In fact I had submitted this a week before". I took that to mean "I submitted this a week ago". As long as it's been submitted, it doesn't really matter if the OP has had it back with the teacher's comments yet.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I still consider the thread title incorrect and would replace 'determine' with 'determining', 'which determines' or 'in', but I am not a teacher.

    "We don't help with homework or assignments that are going to be submitted for marking or grading..."

    Since you are not helping me with homework or assignments that are going to be submitted for marking or grading, so I don't think your above quote is an issue anymore. I am just looking for a second opinion. Thank you.

    I consider it a comma splice because they are two independent clauses, but I am not a teacher.
