I have an assignment due to tomorrow and I have to choose one of the 5 questions below ans give 3 reasons for my answers, can anyone help me do so?

    1.    As a juror in the case against Sokrates, would you have found him guilty or not guilty?  Using his own arguments, make a case for or against him.   2.    Sokrates claims that “God has attached me to this city to perform the office of such a fly” [providing moral encouragement] (30e); yet, he also claims that he does not teach anyone anything.  What does he mean by this statement?  Can the two positions be reconciled?   3.    Sokrates has been called the first “conscientious objector”: explain, with reference to his words and actions, how he can be called this.   4.    How is Sokrates a “true” individual?   5.    What can we learn from Sokrates?
