MG6350 - want to force black

(UK version of printer, Mac OS Big Sur 11.1, networked via WiFi)

Question 1) I'm aware I can print grayscale, but am I right in thinking this still uses some colour sometimes?

Question 2) I've seen tips regarding forcing this series of printer to ignore the colour carts, but none appear to work for my constellation (Mac + MG6350). Is grayscale the only way to go then?

Question 3) I can print "Black & White" from the iPhone: is this true b&w or grayscale?

Question 4) Will the printer still print black only even if the colour carts are empty?


Basically, what I'm trying to do is get the printer to ignore the fact that my colour carts are empty (especially the grey!)

Many thanks.
