Additionally, for the sentence "Circula la respuesta que cree es apropiada", I honestly do not think that it is very well written, because it contains two verbs, "cree" and "es", but with only one conjunction, "que". If you really want to keep it in such structure, then it should be written as: -- Circule la respuesta que cree que (la respuesta) es apropiada. Other options: [Native speakers please kindly rectify any mistakes.] -- Circule la respuesta que cree (la más) apropiada. = Circle the answer that you think (the most) appropriate. -- Circule la respuesta apropiada según su opinión. = Circle the appropriate answer according to your opinion. Please try to avoid unnecessary abbreviations, especially abbreviations that are generally used in local region, such as "CityU", which is though quite broadly used within Hong Kong, anyone who is in other countries possibly has no idea what it actually means. [For instance, a German might think that "CityU' could mean "Stadt-U-Bahn", i.e., the city subway!] Hence, if such abbreviation is necessary, then at least you should state the term in full when you first mention it. Finally, I would recommend you the WordReference multilingual online dictionary, available at: , so that you may consult some translations of words in future. Additionally, you may also refer to the Google multilingual online translator, available at: , to get the first idea of some words or phrases.

The survey is basically well written, since I did not have to refer to the English version in order to well understand it. I just pinpoint some matters that you may need to pay further attention. Introductory part: 1) nivel segundo: Should it be "segundo nivel" or "nivel dos(2)"? Also, you possibly need to put "en el" before the phrase to express the meaning of "in the". 2) para fines: I would probably use "para los propósitos" as the meaning of "for the purposes". (The word "los fines" has a principal meaning of "the ends".) Also, the sentence would be better to be rewriten as: El resultado de esta investigación será utilizado para los propósitos exclusivamente académicos y será guardado estrictamente confidencial. 3) vuestra: The 2nd personal plural form (vosotros) is nowadays rarely used, especially in the Latin American region. The 3rd personal singular (Ud.) or plural (Uds.) form is generally adopted. Hence, in this case, "su" would rather be used. Parte 1(primera parte): 1) Major: I presume that it is translated as "asignatura/disciplina principal". Parte 2(segunda parte): 1) Circula: This is the imperative form of "tú" (NOT Ud.) So you need to use "circule" instead. 2) (Q2) en a tiempo similar: It should be written as "en EL tiempo similar" as seen in Q3 (question 3). 3) (Q3) el desayuno, almuerzo y cena: You probably need to write down ALL articles of the nouns, i.e., "el desayuno, el almuerzo y la cena". 4) (Q4) The conjugation used is in plural form ("hacen" para Uds.), while in other questions, the conjugation used is in singular form (para Ud.) Here you need some verb-conjugation consistency. Verb-conjugation inconsistency also happened in Parte 3, inside the group of sentences 2,3,4 and 5,6,7.
