    I think Christin has already done this by capitalising her answers.

    Christin, you need to try again with numbers 3, 5, 6, 7, 10 and 11.

    The rest are right.

    I think 6 is correct, but I'm not sure I like any of the choices for 8. Huge onlookers suggests the onlookers themselves are huge, not that that are a huge number of them.

    6 would need to be 'Cate Blanchet's portrayal of [the character she played] in The GoldenAge. . . .'

    I agree with you about 8.

    Re: Correct Word...

    I think 6 should be portrayal, which can be synonymous with performance. If I'm an actor assessing a script, I might say that the role or the character is outstanding because it's well-written, but from the perspective of someone viewing a well-acted film, the portrayal would be outstanding.

    Re: Correct Word...

    It means that people under the age of 18 won't be allowed to enter the club.

    'Admitted' is the only grammatical answer here. As for the other alternatives, 'agreed' doesn't make sense, 'let' needs the preposition 'into', and 'permitted' would only work as '...won't be permitted to enter the club.'
