Corrected a couple of typos and have formatted the table so that it is left aligned.

This is looking good now. I would like to see the advice tabulated with columns for the word, definition and relevant example.
Christian's comment below, "I don't like how the choices are in a different order for each part", is still relevant for a couple of the gaps, which have common choices.

Saved a checkpoint:
I agree with Lauren  only offer a few choices for each part.
I think we talked about this question a while ago. You could have the statements and their associated words in a list, and only pick three or four each time the question runs. It looks very forbidding at the moment.
The sentences might work better as fillintheblanks.
I don't like how the choices are in a different order for each part: it makes it harder to see what the options are, and to find the word I have in mind.
In some of your "for example" sentences, you use the word in question!

 There is so much information in each part with all the options that it is a little overwhelming. It might be better to chisel down the options to include only the options that you think people may get confused with. Maybe 5/6 options for each part maximum.
 ADVICE
 I think the first sentence in the advice needs to be reworded. It's a little clumsy at the moment.
 For part a), maybe explain that 3a + 2a is simplified to 5a because you've collected liketerms.
 I feel like the "definitions" are too wordy. I actually feel like you should have a mathematical example either instead of or accompanying the worddefinition. For example, for Factorisation, you have written "To put in brackets finding a common factor, this is usually the simplest form.". My thought process is that the user will be having to recognise and understand what the thing is when it is in a mathematical context rather than in a wordcontext. Therefore, I think you should write something like " for example 2x^2+x3 = (2x+3)(x1)".
 If you've included a quadratic, do you want to include a cubic as well?

Hi Aiden,
Some lines are missing a full stop at the end: i can see the BODMAS definition in the advice section and the end of the line on part b.
In the definition of formula (both in the advice and also in part f), i would change "showing" to "representing", i just think it reads a bit better.
I would also make the choices for the answer in each part variable, so that students can't just click on the same box every time they repeat the question.
But otherwise, i think everything is set out nicely.

This question is crying out for a different part type, or rather a variant on match choices with answers. I'll have a think about that...
As it stands I find some of the definitions a little confusing. E.g. "Tell me what... equals. i.e 5x = 30 therefore x=6" is very difficult to read as a sentance. Think dictionary entries with a mathematical twist: "To obtain the solution to a mathematical problem. For example, given $5x = 30$, to find that $x=6$.
You should use LaTeX for mathematical expressions, even in the definitions. I think for the sake of completeness, including all of the definitions again in the advice would give the student something that they could write down / copy / reference.

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:

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.
