      Only tricky bit is (iv).

      (iv) 1. As it needs a lot of energy to travel the long distance through cervix and uterus up to fallopian tube.

      2. Only the head of the sperm enters the egg. Therefore all the mitochondria in the neck of the sperm are left outside the egg. The mitochondria in the zygote are, therefore, inherited exclusively from the mother.

      In (v) the question referred to survival TIMES (plural!). If only one time was given it was assumed it referred to the egg, the first gamete mentioned ion the question.
