I think all of your answers are correct except for one. Check this article.
I questioned that one too. The only reason i put false is because my instructors question says it means "city of the dead" whereas the article i read says "mound of the dead". What do you think? Do you think its the same thing? I'm not sure if that's a trick question. lol
I think mound and city are close to the same thing in this context.
