    4. B
    5. D
    The only one I see a problem with is 3. However, the main problem is that, as written, none of the four choices is correct. Can you check that you have copied A, B, C and D down absolutely correctly? Check every letter of each word. If you have, then there is a mistake in the book. One of the answers would be correct with one tiny amendment (that answer is not D, by the way).

    If there is a mistake, then it's probably because the person who wrote the question was led astray by 'bubbles'

    Yes, I also assumed that to be the case.
