• Q2
The passage is telling how to make a sub sandwich. Even though key words like 'first' and 'next' are used, we know this isn't chronological structure because
sub sandwiches are always descriptive structure.
It IS chronological.
the *time* you spread the mustard on the bread doesn't matter, and chronological is about time.
comparing and contrasting mustard is more important

• Q4
Last year's English teacher was about 27 years old and she had a little baby boy. She loved to tell jokes and she always had our papers graded the next day. The new English teacher is about 65 years old and she never tells jokes. She throws away all our tests and she writes 10 referrals a day.
This is just wrong.

• Q9
A good tip to know the difference in cause/effect structure and problem/solution is
Cause/effect gives solutions to fix the problem
problem/solution gives ideas to solve the problem, rather than just the reasons that the problem exists.
There's no tip, really.
problem/solution sounds worse
