Those questions do not make any reasonable sense at all. What exactly is the wording of the questions on the assignment?

The question is:

who discovered polygon with 35 sides?

You might as well ask who discovered the square, or who discovered the sphere.

Maybe marivical means who found the construction (i don't know if it even exists though)

Can you construct a 35-sided polygon with compass & straightedge at all?

If people from Ancient Greeks could construct a pentagon and a heptagon, I am sure that some good mathematicians can make it because 35 is just 5 x 7.
