    I don't understand the assignment either, "for each case writing for a newspaper dated tomorrow and read in the town in which the events occurred". The assignment makes sense but the cases don't seem the fit with the assignment.

    It's best that you ask your teacher because you are not only the one confused.

    Good luck.
