Any help is appreciated!

What are Pendentives?

A)Free standing pillars
B)Semicircular arches
C)Octagonal lintels
D)Hemispherical dome

I'm not sure about this one. They are not A because they were not freestanding. D could be right because I've seen them described in such a way, but they weren't exactly domes. C could also be right because lintels are things that held up a structure, as did pendentives, but they weren't octagonal. So I would probably go with B.

The art that was practiced throughout Medieval Period was:

A)manuscript illumination
B)stained glass art
C)icon painting
D)wood carving


The following are the features of an ambulatory EXCEPT:

A)a walkway surrounding the church
B)contained niches with relics
C)allowed pilgrims to visit without disturbing the rituals
D)gave structural stability to the architecture
