So do you have the answers and are they correct? and most importantly I hope it makes sense.

There's something else I'm confused about though with Newton's laws.
Newton's third law says that for every action force there's a simultaneous reaction force equal in magnitude to the action force, but in the opposite direction. If that is true, then doesn't that make the net force zero? If that's true how does anything move?
