  7. The answer is C. Two separate, but connected thoughts are supposed to be separated by a semicolon. Mouse traps are two separate words since the trap is used to catch the mouse. It describes the entity in which to be used, therefore are separate things.

  8. Durrell it itsn't C, that would make no sense as a sentence to be written like that because the merely part cant function as its own sentence.

  9. Jake, Durell is actually correct. "some merely trap them' is a complete sentence. there's a verb and a subject some and trap. So the answer is C. Some teachers may also accept A depending on your class but the answer here that fits best is C.
