MUET Reading March 2016 Suggested Answers

Long awaited, I'm sure. First there was the school holidays and then I only just today got a hardcopy of the exam as my students are not taking this March exam. Anyway, I have cross checked with a fellow friend and we only have minor differences. Below are my answers, NOT MPM's. I'm curious to find out how come the tabulation of the first 7 questions has no 'A' and 2 'B's and soooo many 'C's (5!)... I wonder if anyone can enlighten me on this? Feel free to contact me.

Here is a link to the scanned Reading paper. Try it before checking answers! (Reading Mac 2016)
