  5. You're right, it's not B or D. It is not C because Magellan was Portuguese, not from Florence.

    Although he himself died en route, his expedition continued with his plans and sailed around the world.

  11. I agree. I've taken and given reading tests that are more like "can you find your way through these trick questions" tests. But I take issue with the text and test writers for making these kinds of questions and answer choices so convoluted. It's not necessary, IMO.
