Dalton's Atomic Theory, Atomic Radius and Others

We just finished the chapter on Dalton's Atomic Theory, atomic radius, atomic number, mass number and neutrons. I would like to review these terms with the help of a multiple chose quiz. Can you provide the answers to the following quiz, which I am only using for study purposes? Thank you.
