Eight Questions for Chanuka

Biala Rebbe lights the menorah
1) When should one light eight Chanukah candles, every single day of the eight days Chanukah?

2)When is the Shamash considered a Ner Mitzvah and we may not benefit from it, the same as with the other Chanukah candles ? 


3) Two Shemen Zayis oils, both are of equal burning quality. Both oils are equal status. (i.e.. not one is orlah etc. and the other is not) One is inedible (bitter) the other is edible.
When would it be, you have to light the bitter oil ?

4)This oil may be used only for Shabbos candles and not for Chanukah candles.

Which oil is it?


5)A house with two entrances, one must light at both entrances. At the first entrance the Brachos are recited. At the second entrance no Brachos are said because the sole purpose of lighting there is (חשד ) people shouldn't accuse him of not lighting the Menorah.

When are Brachos recited at both entrances?


6)A house with two entrances creates a (חשד ) in Hilchos Chanukah (light both entrances)


In which Halacha, is it the opposite , having one entrance there is (חשד ) and two entrances removes the (חשד ) ?

7)בימי מתתיהו בן יוחנןכהן גדול

Who was the Kohen Godol
a)Yochanon
b)Matisyahu
c)Both 
d)none 


8)The Rambam ( Hl. Chanukah # 3) starts the first two Halachos with the history of Chanukah.
No other Yom Tov does the Rambam find it important to teach the story behind the Yom Tov.
Why is Chanukah different that the Rambam felt it was important to tell us the story & why we celebrate Chanukah?
