3. The following lines exemplify which meter?
        Nor law nor duty bade me fight,
	Nor public men, nor cheering crowds.
	A lonely impulse of delight
	Drove to this tumult in the clouds. 

  1. iambic tetrameter
  2. iambic pentameter
  3. trochaic tetrameter
  4. dactyllic pentameter
  5. trochaic pentameter
  6. anapestic tetrameter
  7. anapestic pentameter
  8. dactyllic tetrameter

3 is WRONG.

If it were trochaic it would sound like this: "NOR law | NOR du | TY bade | ME fight" -- which is absurd.
