    Ms. Sue, you do realise that the people that are posting these answers more than often do post the correct answers, whereas you often do not? When you give students answers, there's a high chance that you're just off by a LONG SHOT. You rarely give correct answers, and thankfully there are other students here to help each other out. You're just getting upset that the kids are actually getting answers they're asking for.

    But, everyone else here is right, the answers are A B D E, C, and D. Just needed to let off a little steam at Ms. Sue.
