Firstly on question it goes 16a,b,c,e. COME ON! Its the alphabet. And on the question where you ask what does Crooks do to keep himself interested it goes a, read, b, books.
They're the same thing!
And like everyone else, where are the answers, this exercise is a waste of time if we don't know the answers.

Try and keep the layout the same

Other than that Thx

for everyone asking "where are the answers? where are the answers?" They're in the Freekin Book! Duh... it's called "READING!" and these are the simplest questions possible. Anyone who's even heard a 2 minute summary of the book could answer these. If your smart enough to get here, I'm sure you could find your way to spark notes.
