1. I find only 1985, but since it isn't on your list, I'd guess you're right.
3. I'd say you're correct, but this source gives a different number of pages: http://www.powells.com/biblio?show=9780375507915&page=excerpt Your LOC source may show it differently.

5. I'd say Asia, but it's not one of your choices.

Why the question mark on # 5?

Read my post just above your last one.

I will go with “B” and get back to you when I get back the results.
Thank you very much.

Yes, please tell us the answer. I agree with Writeacher that Australasia is not a continent -- and neither is South Africa.
- Literacy - Jen, Wednesday, September 7, 2011 at 2:03pm
I’m confused. Are you saying that none of the choice is correct?
- Literacy - Writeacher, Wednesday, September 7, 2011 at 2:15pm
Ms. Sue is right. Among your choices, only Australia and North America are continents. South Africa is a nation. Australasia seems to be some geographers' designation of a geographical region.
Very strange answer choices there!

5. Geographically, Guam is part of what Continent? Guam is North America, Because its a U.S. Common Wealth State. I would go with North America. :) Even tho it's close very close to Asia.
