    Re: lived exclusively

    N°4 is incorrect.

    N°1 is incorrectly and poorly written. Therefore, there is no correct answer.

    N°5 is also poorly written, and I suspect that the author of these questions might not be a native English speaker.

    I would not use the book these questions came from. It is obviously inferior. Seek out and use only exercise books written and published by native English speaking authors and publishers.
