You are pretty much on target. Here is some of Frost's own thoughts:
"One stanza of 'The Road Not Taken' was written while I was sitting on a sofa in the middle of England: Was found three or four years later, and I couldn't bear not to finish it. I wasn't thinking about myself there, but about a friend who had gone off to war, a person who, whichever road he went, would be sorry he didn't go the other. He was hard on himself that way."

All of your answers sound pretty good to me. The last one is open ended, so you automatically get that one right, and 1-3 are 100% right. Good job.
