    Explanation
    The correct answer is that "One, holy, catholic, and apostolic" are the 4 marks identifying the church in the Nicene Creed. These marks are traditionally used to describe the essential characteristics of the Christian Church. "One" refers to the unity of the Church, "holy" emphasizes its sanctity and moral purity, "catholic" means universal and inclusive, and "apostolic" signifies its connection to the teachings and authority of the apostles. These marks help to distinguish the true Church from false teachings or sects.

    Explanation
    The statement "The church forms 1 body under the leadership of the Holy Father" is the correct answer because it aligns with the idea of the Church professing one Lord, one faith, one baptism. It implies that the Church is unified and under the leadership of the Holy Father, who is the Pope. This statement also suggests that the diversity of races, nations, cultures, and languages does not affect the unity of the Church, as it forms one body.

In the Eastern Christian tradition, instead of using the term "diocese," they use the term "eparchy" to refer to the territory under the jurisdiction of a bishop. This term is commonly used in Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, and Eastern Catholic churches. It is important to note that an eparchy is specific to Eastern churches and differs from the traditional dioceses found in Western Christianity.

The term is often used to describe something that is comprehensive, all-encompassing, or applicable to everyone.

Poverty refers to renouncing material possessions and living a simple life. Chastity refers to abstaining from sexual activity and focusing on spiritual purity. Obedience refers to submitting to the authority of God and religious superiors. These vows are seen as a way to detach oneself from worldly desires and fully commit to a life of service and devotion to Christ.

    Correct Answer
    C. Only Catholics go to heaven; all others go to hell.
    Explanation
    The statement "Only Catholics go to heaven; all others go to hell" is not true in referring to "Outside the Church there is no salvation." This statement contradicts the belief that salvation comes from Christ through the church. The Catholic Church teaches that salvation is possible for those who seek God with a sincere heart and try to do His will, regardless of their religious affiliation. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that only Catholics go to heaven and all others go to hell.
