39) How should the affricates /ts/ and /dz/ be written?
c) Other. /ts dz/ - <ç c>

40) What should be the fate of the infinitives of Vulgar Latin?
d) -āre, -ere, -ēre, -īre > -ar, -er, -er, -ir

41) As of 700 AD, this is the current political situation. Given that both nations have the same ruler, should Powys unite with Loundein?
c) No. One of Gwylog ap Beli's other sons could simply ascend to the throne of Powys, whereas the oldest would be the King of Loundein.

42) Should the plural forms in Proto-Brettaniot verbs be preserved, or should they merge into a single plural conjugation as they did in Old English?
a) They should be preserved.
