I need some help with looking over my answers... thanks for the help...

Base Details

If I were fierce, and bald, and short of breath,
I'd live with scarlet Majors at the Base,
And speed glum heroes up the line to death.
You'd see me with my puffy petulant face,
Guzzling and gulping in the best hotel,
Reading the Roll of Honour. ‘Poor young chap,’
I'd say---‘I used to know his father well;
Yes, we've lost heavily in this last scrap.’
And when the war is done and youth stone dead,
I'd toddle safely home and die---in bed.

–Siegfried Sassoon

Question 5

The connotation of "the last scrap" in the eighth line of the poem is:

Not sure about this one need help...

That the last battle wasn't very important

That the last battle was the most important battle fought so far

That the last battle was going to win the war for their side

That the last battle was still going on

Question 7

What do the following images infer about the older soldiers: "puffy, petulant face;" and "guzzling and gulping?"

I think the answer is the first one.

Most of them are concerned only with their own comfort and not about the fate of the young men they are sending to war.

Most of them also have families at home and are trying to stay safe for them.

Most of them have health problems for which they must seek help.

Most of them are terribly sorry they have to send so many young men to their deaths.

Question 8

The speaker in the poem is speaking about:
I think the answer is the third one/

What he would do if he were President of the United States

What he would do if he could sneak up on the older officers

What he would do if he were like the older officers that command him

What he would do if the army would send him home

Question 10

The word "toddle" infers that the old men:

I think the answer is the first one

Cannot walk without a cane or some help

Drip their drink down their chins when they "guzzle."

Are like infants in their lack of ability to ask for the things that they need

Are like infants in their lack of interest in anyone except themselves
