Cleaned this up a bit.

Here are the questions not answered correctly yet. The #'s 8 and 9 have been used twice and question #8(a) has two points. We have a total of 11 pts awarded out of 18 possible. Two questions' answers were given because no one had the correct response. Three questions remain, so we are missing two points somewhere. If someone can figure it out, or I can later when I have time, it would be appreciated.

Assyrians...didn't they crucify the leaders? That doesn't sound completely correct, but something to that extent.
