Guess the meaning of the words from the given contexts:

1. The medicine tested so foul that I had to hold my nose and quaff it all in one gulp.
2. I quailed at the thought of jumping out of a plane as soon as I looked down, which was probably a liitle late to be having second thought.
3. Peter had no qualms about singing in public, which was a little surprising since he couldn't carry a tune.
4. Aleeza's queries to the Library of Congress for information concerning the old manuscript did not produce the results she had hoped for.
5. Aleeza tended to become querulous when she hadn't had her afternoon nap.
