    The bias of some of the wording of your test sounds like something you would find at a Baptist Bible College or some other highly opinionated and intolerant type of institute, where they are the only Christians and everyone else is a cult.

    1) a, c, and d all do this

    2) b

    3) idk

    4) b. Heresy is associated with something wrong, illegitimate, etc. A schism is simply a division.

    5) c schism is close, but that is not the only definition of the word. Look it up in the dictionary.

    6) b and c, though the instructor probably wants to see you say b, the Mormons.

    7) I'm not so sure this is true, but I'm betting your teacher would say it is.

    8) true. Not sure if your teacher thinks this is true or not, but it is in fact what happens in the real world.

    9) True

    10) True
