  1. #3 is wrong, as finite means limited, and I do not think any of the answers to #5 or #6 work. #8 is also incorrect. You might mean “eminent” there. Just one letter off. A good way to check your work on something like this would be to try using each word in a sentence and then see if the supposed meaning still makes sense. A native speaker of English would not use most of these words in the manner suggested here. But you are trying. That is good.
