This is a forum to discuss grammar. There are no employees here. When provided with something that looks like homework, with blanks to be filled in, there is no way we would know that a person did the homework. Doing it for them doesn't help them learn. Though some regular participants here have been teachers, many have never taught (myself included) or are students learning English as a second language. It is not a teaching platform, though many people learn a lot here. Also, since this is a public forum, there is no way to guarantee that any answer is correct. For instance, Sanjay has learned English by leaps and bounds, in part by his participation here. Most, but not all, of his answers are correct.
