  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.

  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.
