    it will impose on students an ability to complete

    If the honor code functions in academic institutions of Russia, it will persuade pupils to be more responsible in many ways. By virtue of the fact that any student can be reported for an infraction by their colleagues, the set of rules will arouse learners to do everything on their own in order to avoid punishment. Consequently, it will impose on students an ability to complete a task single-handedly that likely to develop such attributes as self-reliance and independence.

    I'm sorry for asking arid questions but I really want to understand how to write something like that.

    The main thing that I want to know is whether the sentence above is logically correct. Can you follow the thread of discussion?
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    I'm curious as to what makes you suspect it's copyright material.

    It just sounds like it.

    You are asking two rather different questions.

    Yes, I can follow the thread of the 'discussion' though it's not really a discussion, as only one viewpoint is given.
    I do not agree with the sentiment, so to me, it is not 'logically correct'.

    "...it will impose on students an ability..." Impose is a synonym of force. We cannot force an ability on someone else. Instill (in) would be a better choice.

    It's written by me. The only source is my head.

    Re: it will impose on students an ability to complete

    In addition to J&K's point:

    1. I don't feel the word "colleagues" is the right word.
    (It depends on what you mean by "colleagues", but "peers" might be a better choice.)
    2. I can see "pupils", "any student", "learners" and "students" in the passage. It seems (to me) that you're using these different words to refer to the same kind of people (=students). Is there a particular reason for you to do so?
