QUESTION 1:
Please choose the corrective figurative meaning for this proverb:
:
 Used of the people of Ngiwal with the implication that they eat seven (instead of three) times a day. Two interpretations: (I) Ngiwal is fronted by a shallow, narrow fringing reef with poor fishing, hence the people must eat an unusual amount of taro; (2) the region of Ngiwal conforms, in the origin myth, with the location of the stomach of the fallen body of the giant Uab. Hence, the people of Ngiwal are continually hungry. Generally, throughout Palau, Ngiwal is famous for the taste of its exceptionally good taro.
 i.e. he's expanding a lot of effort but not getting anywhere
 Your legs will find you good fortune, you seek what you desire
 Chelechang (Present) and Chrechar (Future) were brothers. Present was the favorite of his mother. These are the words of Future reprimanding his mother. The idiom is used of those who inadequately plan for the future.
 Applicable to a person who prides himself on great wealth but does not put it to work; or to one who dresses to the hilt, then stays home. It may once have been applied to villages that were well armed, but peaceful.
