    Try a google search on each description or reading the assigned material from class.

    Google can't find them and this is a college class. I've read the hundread pages of material and looked for each one specifically. Their probably easy and right under my nose. But I asked for help not your implied opinion.

    You already know the deal. No one here is going to hand you the answers and making your screenname "Cutie" is not going to entice the males to give up the answers.

    Considering that I found the first one on my first google search - I think you're right. Keep cracking at it. By the way, you meant to say, "They're."
    It is a contraction of "they" and "are."
    And I offered the only thing you're going to get for a crossword (College crossword struggles?!) puzzle. Anyone else that offers more than that should be ashamed of themselves.

    You must be really bad at crosswords. I got the first 3 with only a few minutes of thought and no Google search. I seriously doubt you have done the assigned reading if a person with only a general education can get 3 of 4 with no special relavent degrees, or research.

    Oh, I'd better delete that post I was writing then....

    What is the point of learning if you just ask for answers? By college, you should be able to figure this stuff out on your own. Didn't you buy a textbook or attend a lecture?

    And if you can't even find the info on Google, you're in serious trouble if you ever have to write research papers.

    Which is why I was snippy- this person posts these on several science forums looking for quick answers and does so everytime they get stuck on a crossword, shamelessly. No other participation, otherwise.

    It irritates me, too.

    I just don't like seeing people trying to skirt the learning process. Why would you avoid a chance to gain knowledge on something? Even if it is just a basic science filler class you need for science credit. Put some effort into it.

    Certainly, you shouldn't come ask for easy answers on a forum filled with people who have worked very hard to attain their knowledge.
