Like NoName said, they know every trick in the book. Besides, and I know this will sound preachy and you probably won't take this advice, but it is just better to do it right and learn how to write a correct paper now. It will help out immensely later out. In high school, you can maybe get away with it, but once you get to college, they will catch you so fast it will make your head spin. Believe me, I was an expert BS-er. In high school I got an A in probably every single paper I wrote. When I got to college and did the same thing, all I got was a C. Which sucks when they are a high percentage of your grade! Needless to say I learned to write a real paper very quick.

But if you continue trying to get out of writing a quality paper, I guarantee that it will come back and bite you in the butt later. I know from experience.

I just cannot ethically tell you how to extend the paper without being caught. But like Carlie said, it shouldn't be hard to add a bit more. I would be willing to proof read and add suggestions if you are stuck.
