How does Pasco get answers to questions?
We do not provide answers on our own. However we leverage the contribution of teaching assistants, students and users to get as many answers to the questions as possible. And unless otherwise stated in the question, we cannot guarantee that the answer to a particular question is correct.
Users can comment on questions or submit answers through the discussion section for each question and we will show you a summary what answers other users gave.

The questions in the app are crowdsourced from student and users. Anyone can submit questions through our online questions upload form.
We do not own the questions submitted.
