25. B? This one is a total guess.
26. D.
27. Well...it was a six-penny bit (half a shilling) an old English silver coin. I don't think they make them any more. These days...a silver coin or silver charms. I guess C. is the closest answer?
28. D.

What follows is a frenzy of wild guessing:

25. b
26. b
27. b
28. I didn't know there were such things as Santa Claus schools (clown schools, yes, but . . .) Er, I'll guess a.
