3) residential area road. I think this bit has been forgotten.

Many things could be correct!

1 & 3 are minimum 'residential'.

2 .. I would say minimum 'unclassified'.

4 I would say minimum 'unclassified'. This could be 'track' but the 
importance of the things at the end tend to elevate it.

Going to a higher classification is all about the importance of the 
roads to the local community...

If the lake, tree and ruins get lots of traffic then the roads leading 
there could be 'primary'! There is not enough information to make a 'rule'.
