I disagree with your answer for 3. The others are correct.

Check your text for number 4. Some grammarians would eliminate the comma between two such short clauses.

Thanks for the help! For 3, is it advice, for the state of advising?
I think that 4 does not need the comma, but the wording of the question confused me for 5. 5 does not need any MORE commas, but it needs the commas it has :/ I think the question could have ben worded better...

4 is avarice.
5 does not need any commas. It's a simple sentence with a compound predicate.
