1. What does an x symbolize on a topographic map?
2. The longitude of the western neat line of Quadrangle A is 30 degrees west. What is the longitude of the western neat line of the quadrangle directly to the southwest of Quadrangle A?
1. Spot elevation
2.37.5 degrees West

Your first one is correct, however the 2nd is wrong.
I believe #2 is 32.5° W.

No your overthinking it How big is a basic quadrangle? Hopefully that helps

Um. 7.5 seconds.
7.5 minutes so the answer to number 2 would be 30 degrees 7 minutes 30 seconds west EDIT: sorry for vagueness in my hint, but I meant that since a USGS quadrangle is 7.5 minutes by 7.5 minutes you could use that to determine the neat line of the neighboring quad
