2:  1 (d),  2(b),  3(b),  4(b),  5(c),  6(d),  7(a),  8(d)  and

   9)  You could examine the filtered sap solution
   under an electron microscope to determine if there
   was a cellular agent present, i.e., very small bacteria,
   or is a non-cellular agent as a virus was present.

   You could also try to cell culture the filtrate.  If it was
   bacterial, you might be able to grow them in the absence
   of other cells, but if it were viral, you might have to
   culture it on host cells.

   You could chemically analyze the filtrate for a genome,
   DNA or RNA and measure the amount of genetic material
   present.  If the infective agent was cellular, it would be
   expected to have a larger genome than if it were viral.
