Hi there! Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

2. All of the above primary sources must be created at the time of a historical event EXCEPT  

magazine articles

  memoirs (memoirs are recollections of previous events, but still considered primary source because the author lived through the event)

3. Primary sources are the only sources that historians use

  False (Historians also use secondary sources)

4. Primary sources are completely accurate and should not be questioned

   False (even primary sources can be biased, can include opinions etc)
