3. Noble gas -> Indefinitely long period of time
4. Almost -> Ahead of time; at the beginning of a period of time
5. Not at any time -> At any time
6. None of two choices -> One of two choices

Once I realized the first word started with an N, they were a lot easier. Good quiz.

I needed the hint for #8. For #2, I guessed newer, but I'd never heard of ewer! Good one.

I also knew ewer from doing crossword puzzles. I've become addicted to them lately and have thought I should stop spending my time that way--but now I see that I am learning something. I couldn't think of #4, though. Good quiz!
