Are there answer keys?

Hi! I used these sheets on my students and it is really working their brains, but I wanted to use an answer sheet to all of these questions to check them off with. Does anybody have one?

The Odyssey Test has 6 questions on The Odyssey, the last two incomplete. Questions 7 through 25 are from another text, The Count of Monte Cristo I believe. Is it suppose to be this way? When I pulled this as a resource I assumed all the questions on The Odyssey Test would be about The Odyssey. Thanks.

Yeah, it’s really messed up. I accidentally over wrote the original, and its gone now. I keep telling myself I’m going to fix it. I hope to come through on that promise one day… Sorry.
