    This is an assignment, Elzette. i am of the opinion that any help from members would be a disservice to you. you do need to go through your books/notes. the answers are all there.

    Isn't the internet great, you can ask the entire world to do your Unisa homework.

    Knowledge is something you gain from hard work and being curious. You do not just pick it up along the road.

    Your own discoveries will linger much longer than freebies done for you by other people.

    Many of the answers can be derived from applying the basic 2012 tax rates info from SARS.

    Elzette, if you get stuck somewhere I expect you'll get some help here. But you need to show you've made an effort first.

    What answer did you get to and how you arrived at it would be a good place to start.

    1. In my experience as a LLB student, I can attest to the fact that multiple choice questions in both exams and assignments are far more difficult that short questions and essays. I would advice you to form a study group with fellow students. Since I'm intimately familiar with UNISA's system, I know that no assignment can still be pending now as we write exams in May and June. I commend UNISA for the 'myunisa' online facility. It not only makes available all your study material: study guides and tutorial letters in electronic pdf format before it's posted to you but only gives you immediate access to discussion forums on each subject, your financial details, your academic record and announcements from lecturers. On the discussion forum you can request from fellow students who will be interested in forming a study group in your geographic area..
    2.What you don’t seem to realize is the wrongfulness of your actions. One of your lecturers may just be a member of TFSA under an anonymous name. By virtue of your actions of asking somebody else to give you’re the answers to your assignment you are in essence cheating and all Universities take disciplinary action for such actions. The better approach is to form a study group which is acceptable practice from all South Africa Universities..
    With Jessica's recent twitter debacle, I think we are now all acutely aware of how any of these posts also serve to be an audit trail

    I wish you every success in your studies!
