How would you approach your instructor to receive more information about the assignment?

This is obviously some sort of assignment because there are 10-20 versions of the exact question - WikiAnswers will not do your homework for you.
Before following the steps below, ask yourself, do you already
know the answer? Has adequate information about the assignment been
given in the syllabus and handouts? They say there are no stupid
questions, but that's not really true. Before contacting your
instructor, read through everything he/she has given you. Look
through all of your class notes. If you are still unsure about the
assignment, formulate a specific question about something that is
missing from the assignment information. For example, if the due
date is NOT listed in the syllabus or assignment information, then
ask when the due date is. It is difficult to answer questions like
"I'm lost, can you help me?" Be specific, make sure you are only
asking something that hasn't already been answered, and share the
answer with your fellow students.
If you cannot approach them after class, then the most efficient way to get time with them to make an appointment with them during their office hours. Most will be glad to help you understand the assignment--they do want you to do well. Write down what the instructor says so that you will be able to have the information when you need it.
This seems like an odd question. Walk up to them when they are not busy and ask for help.
"dude can you please help, i really dont understand"
