  1. No. I think the rules are changing on this, but it is not correct, in traditional grammar, to begin a sentence with numerals. Within a sentence, it is correct to use numerals instead of spelling out big numbers like 1984, but one spells it out at the beginning. B is correct. But that rule may be changing by common use (which is how language changes in all times and places).

  4. The answer is C. D and B are wrong because eighty four is not hyphenated

  5. It's not C, because I took this quiz and C was wrong. It is A because you do not start a sentence with numerals, but you also do not spell out the year in a sentence. You only spell our decades and centuries.
