    I disagree with your answers for 3 and 5. The others are correct.

    Thanks for getting back to me Ms.Sue.... For number 3 should it be a.) analyze the sources for objectivity? Would that be a better answer?

    And for number 5 should it be characters' names? Would that be right?

    And then I was wondering if you could please (when you have time) look at the other posting I did with True/False questions, I posted it right before this question. Thanks so much Ms.Sue ;-)

    I think b is a better answer for 5.
