Exercise 162, Part II, #2 and #5

Can someone be so kind as to explain the reason behind the key's translations for #2 and #5?


#2. English: With her weapons she will destroy many wild beasts.

My translation: Multas feras telis suis delebit.

Key's translation: Armis multas feras delebit.

Is the suis in my translation unnecessary? What about the word ordering?


#5. English: Romans, tell the famous story to your children.

My translation: Romani, narrate claram fabulam liberis.

Stress and Length

I've been reading latin verse for a while, and I managed to read dactylic hexameter - I suppose - quite acceptable, (at least I always get the fifth foot right...), but I still don't see how the length connects with the stress in latin verse. For instance:

John is a great programmer.
