A2k has always considered itself a knowledge site and the owner founder meant it that way and, far as I perceive, still does. Early on, he especially meant it for language knowledge. I think he posted about homework questions at one point. I can't even paraphrase since I don't remember exactly, so that wouldn't be fair, but he didn't treat questioners as cheats.
Most of us prefer the questioner to have done some studying up before just supplying an answer, so that the question and answering can be something of a discussion, but plenty have just answered to be helpful. All people don't start out knowing how to research well.
I remember crying as a grown woman taking a grading and drainage class, sitting in the backyard with papers spread out on a table, trying my best to sanely answer something in the homework I just couldn't, couldn't, couldn't. Turned out that the teacher had worded the question incorrectly, given some wrong numbers, or similar. We forgave him, he was a nice man, we all goof, and long later he helped me once in a while on some construction questions, even after I was licensed, even having aced the boards.
This site is reasonably a place someone might ask such a question.
