    I'm guessing that these are multiple-choice so might make more sense with the incorrect answers.
    However, I'd say that some of the first set of questions are either quite tricky for the age range or a bit vague. In particular, I think the NOT questions might cause problems for particularly younger pupils and those who find reading difficult.

    Q21 is missing at least one word. Some punctuation is also erratic.

    Maybe I'm being particularly dim but I don't get q23 at all.

    I don't like q30 about what bullying - lots of primary schools have issues with children using the word bullying whenever somebody has done something to upset them and have to do a lot of work about what bullying is, do I find some of these options unhelpful.

    I also don't like q32 as I feel this implies it is okay for 7year olds to play games rated 16. They are rated 16 for a reason !! I wouldn't be happy about yr3s watching 15 films and I feel the same should apply to games...

    Although I can't see the other answers I'm guessing the answer to 27 is probably wrong. That you are assuming that having a mix of special characters, capital letters, lower case and numbers makes a password strong?
    Password Length is more important, along with the ability of the user to be able to remember it without having to record it somewhere else. It's too do with entropy

    Agree with the use of not in questions and double negatives. Quick scan through some of them

    46 - you should clarify that you are referring to online disinhibition effect (Suler).

    40 - answer is wrong
    33- it could be any of those
    3 - ? Ambiguous
    43 - is not that black and white
    32- it's also a recommendation of what age you should be to play it

    Refuse - SLT can get very funny with people who don't follow orders.
