The Great Gatsby

Help me answer these Gatsby questions??

1. Fitzgerald creates purpose in Chapter 1. What was his purpose and how does he go about doing it?

7. Write a Gatsby-esque sentence. Make it colorful. My sentence is below... does it make sense?

Life to some in New York may seem very Gatsbyesque, what with their tall glamourous buildings that shine like becones in the night, and Statue of Liberty who’s emerald beauty is known to all over the wide world.

9.The symbolism in the book. List at least 5 symbols and discuss them.

Please help me? I read the book and answered the questions I new. But I'm sooo confused...
