My mother used a lot of these sayings. We are Canadian but grandma was born and raised in Tennessee and moved to Canada to marry my grandfather...I think it was a mail order bride thing from what I can gather...they had never met.

#9 was being nice, it’s not “very large teeth” it’s actually “buck teeth”!

14/15. I live in the South and do not agree with the Coke option. Any carbonated drink is a "soda" in any colord container, a Coke is a Coke in a red can. At least where I live. 🙄

15/15. Easy for me. I’m not a Southerner but I have either trained or been stationed in 5 different southern states and have family living in a 6th.

13/15 I hate to admit this but...I missed the first one because I forgot what quiz I was taking. I hit the quiz & while it was loading, got up to get another cup of coffee, came back & had no clue what the quiz was. LOL!!! The other one I missed could have been two of the choices & of course I picked the wrong one. Oh well, it was a fun little quiz.

#4 can have 2 answers; settle down means to calm down whereas “hold your horses” usually means don’t jump to conclusions, wait and see as well as to calm down.

“Bless her heart” can have any number of meanings in the south (some of them not so complimentary).
