4. is correct, but I doubt if 2 is correct. What were you supposed to read in order to answer this question?

For number 2, we had to read 'Not Much of Me' and 'With A Task Before Me'.

It sounds like regret to me.

I read more regret than shame in Lincoln's attitude toward his education.
From "Not Much of Me":
"There I grew up. There were some schools, so called; but no qualification was ever required of a teacher, beyond “readin, writin, and cipherin,” to the Rule of Three. If a straggler supposed to understand latin, happened to sojourn in the neighborhood, he was looked upon as a wizzard. There was absolutely nothing to excite ambition for education. Of course when I came of age I did not know much. Still somehow, I could read, write, and cipher to the Rule of Three; but that was all. I have not been to school since."
