Make sure you include a variety of different AF styles e.g.

AF2 — the answer is in the text

AF3 — you have to infer (work out) the answer from information that is given — a bit trickier this type

AF4 — questions about some of the language/ vocabulary selections you have used (much trickier this type — you only need to include one of these!)
