  6. What o’clock represents a fifth up from D flat?
  7. If a key has sharps, what is the first sharp?
  8. In the key of B major, what is the last sharp you have added?
  9. What is the first flat that appears in a key with flats?
  10. What is the seventh sharp that is added in a key with 7 sharps?
