1. e. None of the above
If you said Gabriel (Luke 1:28), he was the second person to call Mary blessed. Why second? Think about it?
Who is Gabriel? He is an angel. What does the word 'angel' mean? It means 'messinger'.
Gabriel delivered a message from the first person to call her blessed. Gabriel was sent from GOD.
This question leads us to another related question;
Since GOD called her blessed, why is it that our non-Catholic brothers and sisters refuse to do so?

The word 'blessed' in Luke 1:28 wherein the answer lies, is used in these Protestant Bibles: kj, cev, litv, gnb, web,
and in these Catholic Bibles: vulgate, geneva, drb, confraternity, rsv-ce.

2. f. None of the above
The Catholic Church is a Theocracy.
We are the body, Ephesians 1:22-23, 4:11-12, 5:30, Colossians 1:18, 1:24
Jesus Christ is the head. Ephesians 4:15, 5:23, Colossians 1:18
The Holy Spirit guides the Catholic Church.
John 14:16-17, "And I will ask the Father and He will give you another
Advocate to dwell with you forever, the Spirit of Truth whom the world cannot receive,
because it neither sees him nor knowa him
John 14:26, "
But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name,
he will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you."
John 15:26, "But when the Counselor comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth,
who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness to me;  and you also are witnesses,
because you have been with me from the beginning."
John 16:12-15, "
I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.
When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own authority,
but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.
He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine;
therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.
John 20:22, "When He had said this, He breathed upon them and said to them,
         "Receive the Holy Spirit...""
So in a Theocracy, it is the head that tells the body what to do.
The question of Theocracies leads us to another related question;
How many Christian Theocracies are there? How many can there be? Think about it?
How many GOD's are there?
Since there is only one GOD, there can be only one Christian Theocracy.
Truth is one in Jesus Christ who said in John 14:6,  "I am the way, and the truth, and the life."
Since there is only one Jesus Christ and one truth, there is only one Theocracy, and it is the Church that Jesus Christ founded.
And yet we are led to still another question;
What then are the governments of the 40,000+ non-Catholic sects that call themselves Christian?
The ones that I have researched are akin to democracies, where a vote of the body tells the head what to do.
Is that what Jesus Christ wanted His followers to do? If you answered yes, then please show me the verses proving it?

Yes GOD obeys His Catholic priests when during the Mass, the priest calls down "The Word" with his word.
During the consecration when the priest takes the host and says, "This is my body", GOD transubstantiates
the bread into His Body. When the priest says "This is my blood", GOD transubstantiates the wine into His Blood.
Can you think of other occasions where GOD obeys His priests?

5. a
Yes, the five wounds of Jesus Christ.
