Pretty sure a 50 cal machine gun isn't liable to do much to a M1, except mess up the optics.

A 20mm gun isn't liable to do much to the side armor; even the vaunted 30mm Avenger cannon only penetrates 76mm at 300m, and it's designed to kill tanks. A 20mm round probably does less damage at the same range, and the M1 probably has more than 76mm worth of protection from the side.

Boiling oil probably wouldn't do much unless you lit it, and then it would effectively be the same as a molotov cocktail.

A rock wouldn't do much, even if fired from a trebuchet.

I suppose you could mess up a shell and the barrel, but I dont' think you'd kill the tank unless you got lucky and rolled your grenade down the barrel as they opened the breech.
