  8. Yes. C is right.

    This happened several years ago. The vice president resigned and the Speaker of the House, Gerald Ford, became vice president. Then President Nixon resigned, and Ford became president.

  9. Yes, C is correct, just as the quotation you posted says it is. And you question it?

  11. Gerald Ford was never Speaker of the House. He was appointed vice-president by President Nixon, but not because he was Speaker. He was the House Minority Leader.
