I need help on the following questions.

1. Which of the following quotations from "The River Merchant's Wife" is the best example of an objective correlative?
a. "And I will come out to meet you"
b. "The monkeys make sorrowful noise overhead"
c. "At sixteen you departed"
d. "Please let me know beforehand"

I think the answer is c.

2. The use of apostrophe in "Chicago"
a. shows possession.
b. reveals the speaker's anxiety.
c. makes the poem confusing.
d. gives the poem immediacy.

This question is referring to an apostrophe as a type of poem, not an apostrophe like the punctuation mark. I know the answer is not b or c, so I am left with a and d. I am leaning towards a.

3. In "The Crucible", which of the following is a strong motivation for John to tear up his confession?
a. His fear of eternal ation if he swears to a lie.
b. He wants to be courageous like Rebecca Nurse and Martha Corey.
c. He believes that he has to pay for his sin of adultery with Abigail.
d. He believes that if he does not confess, he will save Elizabeth's life.

I am not sure about this one because I asked multiple people and they all said a different answer. I think a and b are the most likely answers, though.

4. What is the reason Richard and Joan are separating in "Separating"?
a. They are no longer in love.
b. Richard met someone else.
c. Financial hard times got the best of them.
d. Their children have pulled them apart.

I know the answer is not c or d, so I am leaning towards b, but I also think a is true.

5. Which of the following adjectives would you not use to describe the narrator when we initially meet him in "Cathedral"?
a. insecure.
b. ignorant.
c. close-minded.
d. unobservant.

I know the answer is not b or c. I don't know whether to choose a or d, but I think a would be the best choice.
