     I feel that question 6 is somewhat ambiguous. I know
that the statement "Would you mind getting off my foot?"
can, and indeed normally is, used as a directive but
semantically it is a question. Considering also that it was
given out of context on an exam paper and no speaking
meaning was there to be interpreted I think that you would
be justified in saying that it was a question.
