Surprised that such an attack could occur to the United States; surprised that such an attack would be so successful; surprised that airplanes had conducted the attack.

The "Battleship" ruled the waves, until the time of the Pearl Harbor attack...not the aircraft carrier!

When negotiation stalled and almost came to a complete halt when Japan refused to abandon China, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor.

Not exactly, since this is a poorly-worded multiple-choice distractor. The Japanese attack on the US fleet at Pearl Harbor (Hawaii) took place on December 7, 1941, and was made by a Japanese aircraft carrier fleet. The result was that the US declared war on Japan, thereby belatedly entering World War II, which had officially begun in Poland on September 1, 1939.

At what time did japan attack Pearl Harbor?

7:55 AM, but this time would apply only to those in the same time zone as the Hawaiian Islands. In the Philippines at the same moment, it was already December 8. History has shown that most major military assaults occur at dawn or shortly thereafter.
