Emacs Questions

I read the Emacs tutorial, I have the following questions:
1) How to copy (not cut) a text?
2) How to close opened buffer?
3) How to delete a whole line?

1) If you can use the mouse, selecting text will copy it. Also, you can ctrl+space to mark the start of the region you want to copy. Now move the cursor to the end of the region you want to copy and press meta+w. This will copy the region.
2) ctrl+x then k.
3) ctrl+k (twice to kill the newline as well).

Have fun!
