This assignment is to see whether you can write in English ( you might note that your title sentence is ungrammatical) and whether you understand that "better" depends on the subjective dimensions of the comparison, which can range across anything from beauty through utility to humans to ease of cooking ! In my opinion the instructor deserves to suffer from whatever nonsense he gets !
On the basis of these three considerations alone, dog win hands down.
Either the instructor is, as hingehead is fond of saying, a knob
, or he is looking forward to one or two enjoyable surprises.
I'd like to read these papers. I have a feeling all of them will be humerous although for different reasons.
