Looks good man! For 10, I would say your first answer was more correct, since your second answer also has a D5, but that's nitpicking as both have all of the 4 intervals I mentioned. Good work!

Here is my answer below.

I'm curious about something. Besides memorization, what way is taught to theory students to figure out a relative key signature? I came on to my system by accident recently. I use the 6th interval in Major for Minor and the 3rd interval in Minor for Major.

4. F
5. Bb
6. Bb
7. D F G#
8. 3 flats (Eb Ab Bb)
9. B major/ G# minor
10. Phrygian

Nice work man! For me I always look 3 frets down, tone and a half, to find the relative minor of any key. Or, three frets up for the relative major. Hope that helps!
