1. Correct
2. Correct
3. Elfhem refered to Meriadoc as Master Bag

A tall figure loomed up and stumbled over him, cursing the tree-roots. He recognized the voice of the Marshal, Elfhelm.
‘I am not a tree-root, Sir,’ he said, ‘nor a bag, but a bruised hobbit ..........
Pack yourself up, Master Bag!'

4. But this one is taller than some and fairer than most, and he has a cleft in his chin: perky chap with a bright eye

5. No, but nearly ...
‘We will come,’ said Imrahil; and they parted with courteous words.
‘That is a fair lord and a great captain of men,’ said Legolas. ‘If Gondor has such men still in these days of fading, great must have been its glory in the days of its rising.’
