My question is pretty much in the title. We all know that there are a lot of questions that simply copy-paste their homework assignment text without showing any effort. This recent one, for example. I clicked on Close and there was one "Not a real question" close vote, but I chose "Too localized". Which one is recommended in such cases?
They should be closed as "Not a real question".
"Too localized", which I discovered today from this thread:
Too Localized is a question that cannot help anyone else ever again - quite possibly including the person who asked it. It definitely does not mean "unlikely to help the person reading it with close-vote in hand".
and this answer:
Everything is localized in some way, but if your problem is so localized, so specific to this place, this time, those people... that even if it is answered, the answer will never again help anyone else... That's Too Localized.
indicate that "Too localized" should not be used for homework questions. Typos fall under the category of "too localized", since once the typo is corrected, the original poster won't even need it again; homework falls under "not a real question", since no effort was put into the question.
