I'm really sure question 3 is incorrect.

Well I've changed it now, and I think that is right?

Actually, you might be right. Your definition seems to match up with everyone else's on here, it might just be my exam board.

My understanding of niche is the needs of a particular organism from it's enviroment, for example, a certain pH of soil.

So I'm sorry. Especially as it seems you deserve a higher rating than the one I've given you. :/
