    cyclic group of order m

    If G=<a> is a cyclic group of order m generated by an element a∈G, then for each divisor r of m exhibit explicitly an element c∈G of order r.

    Have you even tried this? This really isn't too hard. It doesn't even ask you to show that the element you find with order r is unique. If r|m what can we say about a^{\frac{m}{r}}?
