"Avoidance" is rather a broad term. I assume you mean to apply it to social relationships. Read lots and see if you can find anything that applies: http://www.bing.com/search?q=avoidance+in+relationships&form=EDGNTC&qs=AS&cvid=3342107bed24453fafb535a82df59d17&pq=...

Either/neither is a bit tricky. A group is singular. It is one entity made up of individuals, but still one group. The verb must match the subject: group. http://www.grammar-monster.com/lessons/either_or_plural_or_singular_verb.htm

If the chess game is a metaphor for some life conflict, not a real game, then there is no other person. If it's a real game, the opponent who controls the black pieces is the opponent and the source of conflict. From the excerpt, I don't know which Ms. Tan intends.

The use of the adjective clause, "which is..." is not wrong, but it's cumbersome and awkward. Use of the prepositional/adjective phrase is enough. It would be even simpler to merely say, "I'm looking for a birthday present for my daughter" or "...

It think B is a truthful answer, but Ms. Sue is right. D is the correct answer according to what I know. If I was the teacher using this material, I'd accept either answer as correct - or both.

A memoir, by definition, is non-fiction. It is a person's memory of an event or events in one's life. A play or a poem may also be based on someone's memories, but is usually considered what it is, a drama (play or screenplay) or a poem - separate categories. ...

I agree with your answer. A rhetorical or literary device such as a metaphor or simile, etc., makes an abstract point (some theory or idea) more easily relatable to everyday life.
