  4. Is it A again? I know a necropolis is a cemetery, but is a metropolis a condominium? I don't believe so, but that's the closest match I can find.

  5. I interpret metropolis:necropolis as a home for the living and a home for the dead. That makes a) the best answer. I rejected d) because necrotic is an adjective.
