ANSWER: 1 - I believe E, all are correct.
2 - Also E, I know at least several of the answers are correct.
3 - D. Williams supported all of these.
4 - C. Williams was banished from Massachusetts, and went on to live in what became Rhode Island.
5 - Sorry, I'm not sure what this question means.  If this is a reference to the 1636 charter, it did provide religious freedom to all.  Even Jews settled int eh colony.  So you probably want B.

in franklins "dialogue between two Presbyterians," which of these statements is attributable to "s?" "s" was the character whose opinion was franklin's
a) if mr.h is Presbyterian teacher, he ought to preach as Presbyterians use to preach; or else he may justly be condemned and silenced by out churches authority
b)if the majority of the synod be against any innovation, they may justly hinder the innovator from preaching
c) morality or virtue is the end, faith only means to obtain that end. and if the end be obtained, it is no matter by what means
d) a virtuous heretic shall be saved before a wicked christian
e) both c and d above

is this a ??

Rhode Island's charter guaranteed religious freedom, so D is correct.

The best answer is A, although many would argue that Unitarians of the day should be considered Christians and were not covered by Act.  The act only protected Trinitarian Christians, which covers most Christian sects.

I don't think there is a good answer for the next one.  B & C are definitely wrong as Pennsylvania was clear established to be open to many religions.  A is wrong because non-Christians were welcome under the Charter.  They only could not hold office.  But Jews did settle in Pennsylvania early on and were protected under the Charter.  D. is wrong since the Charter says nothing about not working on the Sabbath.  There were Sabbath laws in the colony, but they are not in the Charter.

For Franklin's Dialogue, I think B. is correct.  T was disturbed about H's preaching on morality.

I think the answer for the last question is E.  The line about the virtuous heretic is taken directly from the conclusion.  Morality or Virtue being the end is the whole point of S's argument.

I hope this helps!
