 SOLUTIONS 
1.  Pass: 2S on a five card suit is out. 3D showing opening bid values is also out. What's left is the best bid in bridge, PASS! 
2.  3H: You have enough to invite. That HQ is a big card.  
3.  Pass: 11 HCP is enough to bid 2NT, but the singleton heart reduces the value of your hand a point or two. This could be wrong, but more often than not you will be right. 
4.  4D: A slam try splinter showing a singleton diamond, three card heart support, and slam invitational values. Perfect. 
5.  3S: Invitational. With one more spade and one less club, you should jump to 4S.
6. Pass:  Don't look for trouble with a likely misfit. There's always the next hand.
