    Oh come on: Start using wiki or google and figuring out these questions on your own.

    I'll start you on the first one: Both were 1800's inventors. Elias Howe invented the sewing machine - not a farm implement. glidden invented barbed wire, definitely an agricultural invention. But choice A doesn't meet the criteria of the question. Keep looking.

    Answering 15 questions that you have ignored for a entire semester is rather bold. Maybe someone will, but most will ignore them.
