Thoughts:

1.1

Androcles and/or St. Jerome pulled a thorn from a lion's paw, depending on what you're reading. Thorn is an old English/Norse letter that corresponds to a modern 'th'

1.2

Each number is double the one before. As M Oehm pointed out in the comments, the numbers posted describe the frequencies of an octave of the note 'E'.

2.1

The hex colour code for cobalt. Cobalt has the chemical symbol 'Co'

2.2

The letter 'r' in braille

2.3

The ASCII code for 'K'? Perhaps more likely is that it's the atomic number of rhenium, symbol 're'

2.4

A CT scan - uses x-rays, which could be seen as risky

3

Exactly as it says - 'answer?'

    $\begingroup$ "Thorn" is also a Nordic and old English letter that corresponds to modern th. All frequencies are in Hz describe the note E. (An octave doubles the frequency.) hat would make the first word "The". $\endgroup$ – M Oehm Jun 2 '16 at 9:03
