This question appeared in a close vote review for me. It currently has two close votes. I can imagine the reasoning: it falls under the "solve my problem" structure, lacking an attempt etc.
I went on to look through the other questions of the user. In the first four I saw, the user gave attempts and contextualization in a pleasant manner. This made me come to a conclusion that the question linked probably did not have an attempt explicitly mentioned simply because he had no idea of "where to begin", or because he thought that his attempts would have no value to the question.
That said, if I evaluate the question by itself, I think I agree that it seems like a homework-style question. But since the definition of those types of questions is intrinsically related to the intent of the user, and this is heavily related to how the user interprets MSE, I think that it may be appropriate to compare it to other questions.
My question is: does the community have some sort of canonical approach to this? More explicitly:
Question: With regards to questions for which their closure may be related to how a user interprets MSE, is it appropriate to judge them by comparing to other questions and seeing if the pattern stands?
Note that I'm not asking about comparing quality. I am asking specifically about comparing intent, in the sense of how the user perceives the platform.
