I think you can put some explanations for those words, which is an easy way to learn and understand.

Possibly found a small bug. The past tense of "leap" in Q 9 looks like in American spelling, "leaped".

Hello Joking_Clock 

In British English, we use both forms; leaped and leapt. In the past, 'leapt' was more popular, but both are OK now. I think they use both forms in American English too. When I am not sure, I usually look at the Cambridge learner's dictionary online: https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/leap

Thanks for commenting
