3* added based on Kristen’s comment; 4* added based on JVK’s comment; 5* added based on Marisa’s comment; 6* added based on Mad Dogs and Englishmen’s comment; 7* added based on Marisa’s comment; 8* added based on Adrienne's comment

Of course, there is always the possibility that none are correct.  Please let me know how to proceed with this matter.
