1) B. This is because when you want to say 'because' in a sentence, you can use porque or por. Por can mean many things, such as for, through, as, because,  etc.) But in this context it means 'because.' It is stating WHY he speaks English so well. He speaks BECAUSE he is American. While you may be confused with using 'para', because it has some similar meanings as por; it is not the same concept used here. If they were saying something like; This assignment is for John. Este ensayo es para John. ( Please pardon my absence of accents, I am using an American keyboard.) Regardless, the answer is B and you will learn all the differences between and para and por soon. (If you are studying Spanish academically, that is.)

2) B. It is stating that you met HER last week at the dance. And since she is a woman (feminine); you would use 'la' instead of 'lo'; which is the masculine version. Also, le, is an indirect object pronoun and is only used when expressing an action TOWARDS or FOR somebody. Once again, se lo is once again masculine and the 'se' doesn't make any sense here because it is a reflexive.

Hope this helps!
