Question 5 -  Is there an easy way to recall the answer to Question 4?

Question 6 - The Kremlin recently claimed secret plans for a Russian long-range nuclear torpedo - called "Status-6" - should not have appeared on Russian TV news.  Were amy secret technical details actually revealed to TV cameras?
