    • D.

      2/2

    Correct Answer
    B. 3/4
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 3/4. The time signature of a piece of music indicates the number of beats in each measure and the value of each beat. In 3/4 time, there are three beats per measure and a quarter note receives one beat. This time signature is often associated with a waltz-like feel, with a strong emphasis on the first beat of each measure. Therefore, the third movement of Symphony #5 is likely to have a waltz-like feel with three beats per measure.

      Allegro

    Correct Answer
    D. Allegro
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Allegro. Allegro is a musical term that indicates a fast and lively tempo. In the context of the fourth movement of Symphony #5, Allegro suggests that the movement is meant to be played at a brisk and energetic pace. This tempo choice may contribute to the overall mood and character of the movement, potentially conveying a sense of excitement or urgency.

    Symphony #5 is in which key overall?

    Correct Answer
    c-
    c minor
    Explanation
    Symphony #5 is in the key of c minor. The "c-" notation is a shorthand way of indicating the key signature for c minor, where the "-" symbol represents the minor tonality. In music theory, the key signature determines the set of notes that are used predominantly throughout a piece of music. In this case, c minor indicates that the piece is primarily based on the notes of the c minor scale, giving it a darker and more melancholic sound compared to major keys.
