The answers "anonymous" posted are not completely correct. I usually would not be interested in posting on here, but I referred back to this page when clarifying and answer I was unsure about.
Thankfully, the answers I needed help with were not the ones that are wrong. But I will help you out by identifying which answers were incorrect, and although it will not eliminate your task completely, it will make it much, much easier. Take what you can get!
I doubt you are even reading this part, probably just skimming the page for the full set of answers as I have done before. Most of the students who are assigned this course did not take it because it interests them, they merely took it to gain credit for an elective and get them that much closer to graduating. So I understand the frustration in having to read a book on kids when it doesn't even hold your attention.
So I'd like to help you out, and hope you read this post and compare it to the answers posted by "anonymous" and that you get a good score. :) I'd hate to see you cheat, and get a bad score.
I realize that I probably shouldn't say I agree with cheating at all, but I've been there with these tests. And inaccuracy is frustrating.
Here are the answers that were wrong:
(I will not give the correct answers, but all you have to do is look up these ones.)
7 is wrong.
13 is wrong.
17 is wrong.
20 is wrong.
