I would say a, e, b but I will add that the first one is a bad question. What are these from?

Since everybody thinks so and 'a' and 'd' were my last 2 choices in the 1st question

a, e, and d. The first is obvious--if something reflects different periods in your life it is autobiographical. The second is the same, a traditional piece is one familiar to accepted ideas and does not offend while an experimental one is often one that shocks the current accepted norms. The third one empahisizes that scientific concepts do not need a particular person in history to create them because others would have done so without the particular person, whereas the passage claims that only Beethoven himself could have created the particular symphony. Thus, impersonality is the answer as it means something does not depend on the particular person.

Oh I get to know that I got 2/3 of the questions wrong!....well does'nt really matter-I've given my SAT-I twice and I'm not gonna ever give it again.

third IS d not b

because the statement doesn't discount the importance of scientific discovery, but just describes it as a truth that can be discovered by more than one person.

Agree w/Dschnapps about #3
