    3. Sanguine refers to blood, while sedulous relates to careful perseverance.

    4. Feral refers to manners of a wild beast.

    6. Peremptory equals haughty.

    It is interesting that I got these three answers from an online dictionary, but you say that "I couldn't even find any answers using the dictionary website."

    With the remaining sentences, you can try the dictionary again, carefully looking over the definitions and using the cues from the sentence to make your decisions.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
