9. The following line is an example of which meter?
	When to the sessions of sweet silent thought

  1. iambic tetrameter
  2. iambic tetrameter with substitutions
  3. iambic pentameter
  4. iambic pentameter with substitutions
  5. trochaic tetrameter
  6. trochaic tetrameter with substitutions
  7. trochaic pentameter
  8. trochaic pentameter with substitutions

8 is WRONG.

One trochee doesn't make the five-foot line trochaic as a whole.

This is, admittedly, a highly irregular line:

WHEN to the SES sions of SWEET SIL ent THOUGHT
/       - -       / -       - /       / -       /
