Since I don't think any of us is an expert in South Carolina knowledge, we'd have to look up the answers to most of these questions.
I'll bet, though, that you're pretty sure you're right about most of your answers.
If you post just four of the questions that you're not sure about, I'll be glad to help you. Please post them under a new question so I don't miss them.
