  1. Now wait a minute. I am not going to just sit here and spew trues and falses so you can copy them down and hand them in with my mistakes included. How about trying to answer? Please do not just type T or F but give a reason. I bet you know the answer to many of those. In that case there is no need to post the ones you know the answer to. Watch out for trick questions, such as having names right but their parts of the country wrong.
