Springfield Armory XD/XDM Pistol Questions

I am semi-retired and I am taking a self-passed and self-taught Armorers course and now I am on the Springfield Armory XD/XDM Pistols. I hope to become a part-time light Gunsmith in the future.

There are over 60 quiz questions covering this firearm and I have answered most of them. During my study and research I am having some problems related to some of the following quiz questions. Either I am not sure of the correct answer or I have conflicting answers.

Can you help me determine the correct answers for these few final 6 quiz questions?

Thanks for your help.

a) The rear portion of the barrel when the chamber is loaded

Note #20. What gun part holds the extractor in place?
a) Striker safety retainer pin
b) Loaded chamber indicator pin

Note #21. The trigger bar pushes on what gun part to move the sear out of engagement with the striker?
a) The striker safety lever

d) The striker spring guide

Note #22. What gun part pushes on the striker safety (firing pin blocking safety) to deactivate it?
a) The striker safety lever
