Default COVID Sheep

Let's play another sheep game!

I will follow vividox' original rules...for the most part:

Not a lot of points for creativity in this game. Points are determined by how many people answered the same as you. For instance, if 7 people answer the same on the first question, each of them gets 7 points for that question. The winner is the person with the most points after all 20 questions. There should be no conspiring with anyone else, and one submission per person (no alts) please. There is no limit to number of people who can play, just have your answers in before [the deadline for submissions]
PM your answers to me by Monday, 21:00 UTC, April 20, 2020.
Sheep points only.
Reveal show is going to be similar to the last game I hosted. I will post the results of two-six questions per day. I intend to post the results of questions 1-4 on Monday evening, April 20, 2020.
As always, I reserve the right to make up the rules as we go along.
All decisions are final unless I change my mind.
The use of google or any other search engine is perfectly cromulent for all questions.

Here are the questions:

1 Name something you eat for breakfast
2 Name something you eat for lunch, the noon meal
3 Name something you eat for dinner, the evening meal
4 Name something you eat for a snack
5 Name something you drink with breakfast
6 Name something you drink with lunch, the noon meal
7 Name something you drink with dinner, the evening meal
8 Name something you drink with a snack
9 What's a good side dish for sheep?
10 What's a good side dish for goat?
11 What's a good side dish for crow?
12 Name something a sheep eats.
13 Name something a goat eats.
14 Name something a crow eats.
15 What is your favorite musical time signature?
16 What is your favorite musical key signature?
17 What is your favorite Shelter in Place activity?
18 What's your preferred Excel date format?
19 Let's play a game of chess. You are white. What is your first move?
20 What is a foreign language that you have learned or would like to learn?

Extra Credit - Half Sheep Points Available:
A Pick your favorite flag: Chad or Romania
B Pick your favorite flag: Indonesia or Monaco
C Pick your favorite flag: Luxembourg or Netherlands
D Pick your favorite flag: Ireland or Côte d’Ivoire
E Pick your favorite flag: Norway or Iceland
F Pick your favorite flag: New Zealand or Australia

21 No points available - Would you like a PM notice each night that questions' results are posted? (suggested answers: Yes, please; No, thank you; Yes, please, but only for the first reveal; Yes, please, but only for every nth reveal; Yes, please, but only for the first and last reveal; Yes, please, but only for the last reveal)

22 No points available - given the first group of questions will be revealed on Monday, April 20, 2020, when should the last group of questions be revealed? (e.g., I could easily stretch this to Monday evening of the week following or could get it wrapped up by within the week. If the latter, would you rather have all of Friday to complain about the questions, moderator, & host of this game (i.e., the last reveal would be Thursday night)...or would you prefer a last-reveal on Sunday night so that you have a whole week to air your grievances?)

PM your answers to me. Kindly use this as a template for your submission, entering your response after the semicolon:
1;
2;
3;
4;
5;
6;
7;
8;
9;
10;

Look, so far JFG is (spoiler alert!)tied for first place, so I think he has the right to be a little bit arrogant &, let's face it, winning an AO sheep contest beats passing an exam any day (or was it passing gas (I don't know)).
