I disagree with your answers for 3, 4, and 8.
Not sure about your answer for 1. Which line/lines is/are from the scene when Antigone and Haemon are speaking to Creon in lines 701-1090?

1) Here is the text. I didnt quite understand your response for number 1. Can you clarify?
ismene: impossible things should not be tried at all.
antigone: go away ismene: i shall be hating you soon, and the dead will too, for your words are hateful. leave me my foolish plan: i am not afraid of the danger, if it means death, it will not be the worst of deaths-death without honor.
ismene: go then, if you feel that you must. you are unwise, but a loyal friend indeed to those who love you.
3) I really cant find this answer. My second guess would be B - soaring bird.
4) I'm not sure what the answer is for this one.
8) For 8, I thought the answer is A. Its asking for the reasons except. The didnt want to feel cowardly by faking sick. He thought that death is inescapable. The only one I am unsure of is D. I am not sure if he felt invincible. If A is wrong my next guess would definitely be D.
Thank you so much for your time!

For #1, b and d are straightforward. No irony involved. Find the other two in the text and see what you think.
For #3, read around line  and see what you think:
For #4, reread Ode 3. The answer is obvious!!
For #8 -- you're guessing?? Go back and reread the play. Or read about Caesar's character here: http://www.sparknotes.com/shakespeare/juliuscaesar/canalysis.html
