  2. 2) The weather at your destination airport is forecast to be 3SM visibility and 2000' ceilings at your arrival time (as well as 2 hours before, and 1.5 hours after). Do you need to file an alternate?

    According to 91.167, you need 2,000+ foot ceilings with 3SM or more visibility within +/- 1 hour to land at an airport to not need to file an alternate airport.

  3. 3) You're flying into a Class B airport on an IFR flight plan. Do you need to establish two-way radio communication with the control tower before entering Class B airspace?

    When you're on an IFR flight plan, you don't need to talk to the tower before entering Class B airspace, because you're already communicating with ATC (usually approach when you initially enter Class B).

  5. 5) You go missed on a localizer back-course approach. When you cross the localizer, will you have reverse sensing or correct sensing? (Using a CDI with OBS)

    You'll receive reverse sensing on the back course, no matter what side of the localizer you're on.

  6. 6) After you go missed, you enter a holding pattern at 8,000' MSL. What's your max holding speed?

    When you're above 6,000' MSL and at or below 14,000' MSL, you're limited to 230 KIAS in a holding pattern - unless you receive an exception from ATC.
