Math
No. Set up a ratio, cross multiply, and solve for x. 4/5 = 16/x (ratio, with "x" where the unknown is) 4x = 80 (after cross multiplying) x = 20 (after dividing both sides by 4) Now you try the second one.

To me, 1 means that Sam and I posed together to make one scene -- like the model. To me, 2 could mean that Sam and I made different poses like ones the model had made. To me, 3 could mean that Sam and I made different poses like the ones made by two or more models.

There's no need to switch names. That statement is generally true. Sometimes people like to get tricky and bury the topic sentence in the paragraph, but that often leads to confusion and/or fuzzy interpretations by the reader.

I don't know how that can be answered correctly. As I posted before, it's the content of the sentence, not the number of words, that makes the difference.

2 is correct. It uses the reflexive pronoun "herself" correctly. 1 is correct only if "She" and "her" are two different people.

Voices that are high and low have more to do with where those voices are on the musical scale, not in loudness. 1 and 4 are opposites. 2 and 3 are opposites. 5 is odd, but not necessarily incorrect.

"cannot" is spelled as one word usually. 1 and 3 seem odd, but 2, 4, and 5 are fine. It makes no difference whether "may" is included or omitted.
July 14, 2016

English
1 is correct, but 2 is not. "Off" means you were on top of it and then you got off! 3, 4, and 5 are okay; 3 and 4 mean the same thing, but 5 is slightly different. To check out, to check on, to get out, to get off -- all those are phrasal verbs: http://grammar.ccc....

"Detour" doesn't fit. http://www.dictionary.com/browse/detour?s=t "Get" isn't quite right, either, but 1 and 2 mean approximately the same thing.

1 is closest to 3. 2 implies he gave it all away, didn't have any for himself.

No -- use only "from." You can also use "omitted" but that implies the name has been left out by mistake. The verbs "erased" and "deleted" and "removed" indicate the name was left out on purpose.
