QUESTION 1:
Please choose the corrective figurative meaning for this proverb:
:
 That which is only half boiled to hardness, especially in making coconut candy. Hence, anything that is undetermined, undecided, or only partially resolves a problem.
 The saying defines life as a confined, perilous journey, symbolized by the painful narrowness of the birth canal. Generally applied to the trials of life, or sometimes by a parent to a child that does not want to do his chores.
 A boastful person is like a puffer fish, full of air and not edible, hence not worthy of note.
 Probably of folk-tale derivation, the idiom may be applied to a man who has married too close to his own clan, thus not gaining the assistance of the wife's clan in food and services, since this would amount to the clan giving to itself. Also applied to a situation where a person expects to have some service performed for him but ends up doing it himself.
 It's a decision, plan etc. that will backfire.
