  1. See my previous answer for this question.

  2. I would go with 4. Removing "Although" makes it an acceptable but rather confusing sentence. The word "which" apparently applies to the cultures (NOT the emergency room and cultures). I am not sure if the comma in front of "which" is necessary or correct. The comma should be placed after "emergency room".

    It would be better as two sentences.

  3. It looks as if Jennifer/Martha/Troy/Deeksha/mike/melody/kristin/nicole can't figure out who he/she really is. That's probably why he/she didn't read Ms. Sue's previous answer.

  4. The hospitalization was prolonged because of the absence of any good choices for oral medications to treat his UTI.
