It does seem a bit cheeky to ask for all the answers without attempting them yourself.  Look at some of the answers you have been given to see if you can work them out. That will be a learning curve for you and next time you might surprise yourself and answer some yourself. Have a go. 

9 Seems to be the same answer as 3 (for different reasons, different parsing).
