7-8 min.
All correct but 7, I was'nt sure if "waves" were referring to water or to waves of wind and didn´t know what "crests" meant :D
I guess I still have some way to go until I´m fluent in English

I used the process elimination for question 7, took a lot of re-glancing through the passage:
7. It can be inferred from the passage that some scientists believe that pterosaurs
(B) had sharp teeth for tearing food: No mention of their teeth in the passage
(C) were attacked and eaten by larger reptiles: No mention of pterosaur being prey to a specific predator
(D) had longer tails than many birds: Initially thought this was the correct ans, but glanced through the passage and no mention of pterosaurs tail as compared to birds
(E) consumed twice their weight daily to maintain their body temperature: This one is tricky too, passage does mention that pterosaurs were warm blooded, but Huxley does give a hypothesis for the same with no mention of pterosaurs feeding habit.

(A) lived near large bodies of water : By process of elimination, this is what I GUESSED and also thet fact that "high waves to channel updrafts" was mentioned towards the end of the passage. Very tricky to be a confident YES.
