    Most of them are correct, ill tell you the ones that arent:
    The horse had smaller feet so can escape predators easily- Shouldve said, the have a larger surface area to prevent them from being stuck in the mud.
    Statement is incorrect as only 100 boys were tested - Shouldve said out of the group tested, it was proven only 88% drink alcohol so isnt all. (you might get away with that anyway)

    The rest r fine

    It didn't say only 88% drank, it said only 88% drank beer, there was no info about how many didn't drink...

    AQA hate it when you bring recurring decimals into science, it doesn't exist at GCSE science. Leave that to maths, you would probably only drop one mark for not rounding it to 0.67 or 0.7
