and synapses with many neurons, resulting in multiple responses, is:
a. Convergence
b. Divergence
c. Feed-forward
d. Polysynaptic

I would say d, but just guessing

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

I agree with JackBean - lots of synapses makes sense as polysynatic. However a single signal spreading into several is divergence....your choice!
