    I'll ignore the (A), (B) etc. because it is too confusing to try to figure out why they are there!

    1. WERE (not was few)
    2. strange to say "which" because I like "who" so much better!
    3. "in the affairs of morals" seems strange but if you can accept that = no error
    4. and me (not for I)
    5. definitely NOT "flown by" because she was not flown, but the monoplane was!
