I am having problems with q4. The best I can come up with is
. For if once we keep two marches which (are) of three days away, the enemy will no longer follow us
I know this isn't right because "road/journey" is singular
The solution can't be "a journey of two or three days" because it doesn't say " of two"
Where does the two fit in?

Î´ÏÎ¿ is often indeclinable when used with plural nouns, so I would take it here as going with Ï„ÏÎµá¿–Ï‚ to give you "of two or three days." If I remember correctly, Î´Ï…Î¿á¿–Î½ usually occurs only with dual nouns.
