Answers :

Could be the starter or it could be the starter solenoid.
\015\012if you want to test --- take your volt meter and measure the positive wire going to the starter while someone inside the car tries to start the car,, you are measuring between the solenoid and the starter --- if you have 12 volts there then your solenoid is good and the starter is bad,, but I think if I remember it right that the solenoid and the starter are sold as a complete unit --- you can also remove that power cable going to the starter and with a pair of jumper cables ( use only the positive clamp ) ,, clamp one side to the + side of the battery and take the other side and touch the positive post on the starter,, if the starter jumps then the starter is good and the solenoid is bad. be careful not to touch the body of the starter while doing this test, ( damage to the starter or battery can happen if you short it out ).
\015\012also check you main fuse to make sure that is not blown...
