7. The following lines are an example of which meter?
        Happy the man whose wish and care
	A few paternal acres bound

  1. iambic tetrameter
  2. iambic tetrameter with substitutions
  3. iambic pentameter
  4. iambic pentameter with substitutions
  5. trochaic tetrameter
  6. trochaic tetrameter with substitutions
  7. trochaic pentameter
  8. trochaic pentameter with substitutions

6 is WRONG.

It's tetrameter, right enough, but not predominantly trochaic, despite the fact that the first foot is a trochee. You'd have to argue that there is one trochee (HAP py) and three substitutions, which would hardly be plausible.
