You have too many shapes delete some it will get activated. Did this happen to me recently, it took me a long time to figure out.
This is pretty easy to do. Open it in Photoshop, create a new layer on top, add a gradient to that layer of Green to Pale Yellow. Then play with Blending Modes and clean it up. Here's it with the layer mode set to Darken and then deleted the color real fast from outside the crown: Alternatively you could do a different blending mode, for a different ...
The Shift key constrains proportions. If you start with an oval, it will continue to be an ellipse as you scale it. To turn an ellipse into a circle, or a rectangle into a square, adjust the height and width properties manually (be sure that auto-keyframe is turned off if you don't want to make this part of an animation) so they are the same.

If you start with the disc in the middle, you know its radius in pixels: R_red. The area A of the disc is A=pi*R_red**2. A is also the area of the green and blue area, respectively. Therefore, the outer radius of the green ring belongs to a disc with area 2*A. R_green = sqrt(2*A/pi)), and consequently R_blue=sqrt(3*A/pi)). So, R_green is sqrt(2) ...
The brush you are using is an Art Brush. Art Brushes just take an object and wrap it along the path from start to finish, even if the ends don’t line up perfectly. What you should use here is a Pattern Brush, which you can configure to fit perfectly. Here is a comparison between an Art and a Pattern Brush I made from the two rectangles on top. If you want ...
...or use the Shape Builder Tool to trim off the excess lines
That only works with shapes. Combine your lines to a shape or expand (Object > Expand...) the line thickness to a shape, then it should work.
I use the pencil eraser in brush mode. Under the brush panel make sure the only boxes checked are Smoothing and Dual Brush, and it should show a mostly solid white brush preview. The brush with these settings should act just like "block mode" and erase everything under it. You probably already figured something out by now but oh well.
Easy one. Enter Free Transform mode (Edit > Free Transform or CMD+T) and, at the top of your window, you will see these boxes: Where you see "100%" in the width and height, simply enter the pixel value that you wish it to be: Hit Enter until your changes are applied.
