    The correct answer is A. 1945

    1 Vs 11

    The correct answer is B. 5

    Translation: Today is Paco's birthday. Paco lives above a shop. Every morning he goes to the shop to see his father. After talking with his father for five minutes, Paco leaves for school. Today his first class is maths, his next class is history and the third class is music. Although Paco likes music, he cannot play the flute. He does not like geography, but he does not have that class today. He has English class after music. After school, he comes home and goes to dinner with his family. Paco has two brothers and a sister called Raúl, Juan and Lorena. Paco is the oldest of all his siblings. Juan is 17 and Lorena is 15 years old. Raúl is younger than Juan and older than Lorena. The family go to their favourite restaurant, called "La Marina", before going bowling.

    1. Paco talks to his father for five minutes. True
    2. Paco speaks to his father before going to school. True
    3. Paco has three classes today. False
    4. Paco likes his music classes. True
    5. Paco can play the flute. False
    6. In total, Paco has three siblings. True
    7. Lorena is the youngest of Paco's siblings. True
    8. Paco's family go bowling before eating. False

    (Edit: Umm, right. Another mistake by me, maybe I wasn't awake or something.

    The above sentence does not actually make sense; there is a slight grammatical error. It should read, "4. Paco le gusta la clase de música."
    Thank You to Jen for pointing this out to me.)

    The correct answer is A. Rise

    The kitchen temperature would rise due to the fridge's motor having to work harder to keep the fridge cool. The fridge temperature itself would cool the outside temperature slightly, but it wouldn't be as much as the motor heat.

    The correct answer is C. Ich wohne in der Nähe des Waldes.

    In the German language, the word Nähe is a genitive preposition meaning in the region of in English as well as near. In this case, the phrase der Wald would change to des Waldes. (more info. here)
