    I read this book last year in English, so I know most of these. I will answer all them. Most will be right.

    1. True

    2. True

    3. False. I am pretty sure he was supposed to get money, but never did.

    4 True

    5 True

    6 False. He opens his parties to everyone, with hopes Daisy will show up.

    7 True. They used to go out before Gatsby went into the service.

    8 True

    9 False

    10 False. He is jealous of Gatsby

    11 B

    12 A

    13 D

    14 B

    15 Either A or C. Pretty sure it is A though.

    16 A and B both work. I think is the better choice though.

    17 B

    18 D

    19 D

    20 D

    Again I think that these answers are correct. Here are some other bits on information that you may find useful.

    Wilson knows that Myrtle is cheating on him, he just doesn't know that Tom is the one.

    Daisy and Gatsby were an item at one time.

    Gatsby bought the house he did because it was near Daisy's

    Gatsby takes the blame Myrtle's death.

    His real name is James "Jimmy" Gatz.

    Gatsby knows Tom is connected to Daisy, so he kind of starts talking to him.

    Good luck with your answers. I hope I helped even just a little!!!

    Read the book a long time ago. Why don't you sit with your list of questions and watch the movie? It was a good adaptation.
