Do the *** indicate your choices?
You are asking for us to do too much here. We don't do complete homework assignments or tests for students here.

Here are my comments on the *** choices.

1, 2, and 3 are correct

4 is correct if the source radiates equally in all directions
5, 6 and 7 are correct
8. is wrong. Think of the light emitted by a standard candle. That what the modern "candela" approximates
9, 10, 11 and 12 are correct
13 is wrong
14 ? is wrong. Fastest light velocity is the one with smallest refractive index. You should know what that is.
16, 18, 19, and 20 are correct

20, 22 and 24 are correct

On #25 and, compute the di/do magnification ratio.
Use the lens equation
1/do + 1/di = 1/f

Do some more work on the others if you need additional help.
