English

Which of the following is a factor that can help account for the great difference between Old English as we know it and Middle English as we know it?
Although there were possibly hundreds of dialects of both languages, we really only have a written record of a few of them.
The Old English we know and the Middle English we know did not develop from the same dialect.
With so few people able to read and write, communication in the language was almost entirely verbal. With no written standards, language changes very rapidly.
In the hundreds of years between our written records of Old English and Middle English, the language was influenced by both Norse and French associations.
With travel limited, the language (dialect) of even neighboring regions grew separately and differently.
All of the above. I think it's all of the above.

What did Henry II do that solidified his power as king but led to economic problems and help incite conflict with the church?
Executed all Bishops who were opposed to his rule.
Gave enormous financial gifts to the nobility to gain their support in his conflict with the church.
Built and rebuilt castles throughout the land.
Bribed corrupt Bishops to gain their support and divide the church.
All of the above. i think this is also all of the above.

Which of the following was a strategy Henry II used to help in his conflict with the church?
He bribed corrupt Bishops to have them follow him.
He bribed the Pope.
He had opposing churchmen executed.

I'm pretty sure the last one is the answer.

Which of the following is true of the opening lines of the Canterbury Tales?
The lines create a setting for later conflict between the major characters in the story.
The lines foreshadow coming stories by dropping hints of what will come.
The lines are not much more than a rough translation into English of the opening lines of Bocaccio's Decameron.
The lines suggest that the regenerative powers of the sun and the rebirth of spring are a fitting setting for a pilgrimage.
The lines closely follow the Latin tradition of using a bucolic setting to introduce a satiric writing, or satura. Chaucer uses the form of satura to make a subtle attack on corrupt members of the church, following the ideals of the Roman poet Horace, who said, "Satura tota nostre est!"
i think the answer is d.
