Yama,

Wow!  Eight multiple choice questions.  It sounds like you want us to do your whole lesson for you.

I'm here to help, and I want to help, but I really think that the best thing here is for you to at least attempt an answer to each question, and explain why you chose it.  Then one of us can go through and, essentially "grade" your answers.  If you get any wrong, or if you choose a right answer but for the wrong reasons, we can then help you understand what was wrong with your thinking.  And if you get them all right, and for the right reasons, so much the better!

Trust me, you'll learn better this way.  Plus, you'll save us a lot of work.
