When ratio_dark is 1, the advice says "there are 1 dark chocolates". You could either write two versions for the singular and plural cases, or make sure ratio_dark is always greater than 1.

part a you are missing a full stop after box
when I did the question part b calculated there were 14 of every kind then part d said there was 15 coconut, not that important it just didn't flow between questions
in the advice, part b I think it would look better if you aligned method 1 and method 2?
part c I don't think the first few lines of working are useful as they don't contribute to the answer and I don't kniw whether the just add confusion
part d in the question only accepts simplified answer but you haven't explained or stated in the advice what the simplified version is or how to get to it.

other than that great question!

Nearly there...

In your advice, where you are simply inputting numbers into sentences, you can use "there were {} nutty", rather than "there were $\var{n}$ nutty". Inserting the number in LaTeX changes the font typeface, which is not necessary here. 

I would drop part (e) altogether on this one (probability) as it is a step beyond the core topics that you are assessing (ratios and percentages).

Statement

"There is an equal distribution of chocolates throughout the box." seems either clunky or ambiguous to me. Maybe "The box contains equal numbers of each kind of chocolate."

Parts

In part c, you want each kind as a proportion of the remaining chocolates. You could say "what percentage of the remaining chocolates are plain?"

In part d, put the i) and ii) in italic or bold to make them stand out.

In part e, I would prefer "$\Pr(\text{Nutty chocolate picked}) = $" to "Probability = ". Set precision restrictions on the gaps - 2 decimal places for the first one, and 0 decimal places for the second one.

Advice

"Whole complete" is a tautology. You could say "100% represents the whole box of chocolates".

In the advice for part b, rather than "You know that each type of chocolate is represented equally in the box, so you need to find 20% of the original number of chocolates." you could say "We worked out above that each type of chocolate makes up 20% of the box, so we need to work out 20% of {chocs}".

In part c, I'd replace the first sentence with "There are now {type} fewer chocolates in the box, leaving {chocs}-{type} = {minusc}."

Part d: NEVER use the word "simply"! No matter what you're talking about, there will always be a student for whom it isn't simple, and saying so won't make them feel great. Cutting out the word "simply" leaves a perfectly acceptable sentence. And again you've got "amount" where it should be "number". "Amount" is used for continuous measurements, while "number" is used for discrete numbers of objects.

Part e: "The amount of chocolates in the box is equal to {a}" is a clunky way of saying "There are {a} chocolates left in the box". You might want to put "(to 2 decimal places)" after the calculation.

You've got some stray bits formatted as headers instead of paragraphs.

This variable is an HTML node. HTML nodes can not be relied upon to work correctly when resuming a session - for example, attached event callbacks will be lost, and mathematical notation will likely also break.

If this causes problems, try to create HTML nodes where you use them in content areas, instead of storing them in variables.

Describe what this variable represents, and list any assumptions made about its value.

No parts have been defined in this question.

Select a part to edit.

Ask the student a question, and give any hints about how they should answer this part.

The correct answer is an equation. Use the accuracy tab to generate variable values satisfying this equation so it can be marked accurately.

Advanced settings


Checking accuracy

Define the range of points over which the student's answer will be compared with the correct answer, and the method used to compare them.

Variable value generators

Give expressions which produce values for each of the variables in the expected answer. Leave blank to pick a random value from the range defined above, following the inferred type of the variable.

Test that the marking algorithm works

Check that the marking algorithm works with different sets of variables and student answers using the interface below.

Create unit tests to save expected results and to document how the algorithm should work.

There's an error which means the marking algorithm can't run:

When you need to change the way this part works beyond the available options, you can write JavaScript code to be executed at the times described below.

Run this script the built-in script.

This script runs after the built-in script.

To account for errors made by the student in earlier calculations, replace question variables with answers to earlier parts.

In order to create a variable replacement, you must define at least one variable and one other part.

Variable Answer to use Must be answered?

The variable replacements you've chosen will cause the following variables to be regenerated each time the student submits an answer to this part:

These variables have some random elements, which means they're not guaranteed to have the same value each time the student submits an answer. You should define new variables to store the random elements, so that they remain the same each time this part is marked.
