2. The following line is an example of which meter?
	The curfew tolls the knell of parting day 

  1. iambic tetrameter
  2. iambic pentameter
  3. trochaic tetrameter
  4. dactyllic pentameter
  5. trochaic pentameter
  6. anapestic tetrameter
  7. anapestic pentameter
  8. dactyllic tetrameter

5 is WRONG.

It's pentameter, right enough, but not trochaic (i.e. not "THE cur | FEW tolls | THE knell ...").
