Question 9 is false, only the mr of battery will suffice, not assault. And what is your answer to Q 13, as the mr I have learned is intention to cause gbh (serious harm).

completely agree with Alice some of these answers arent correct but nice try

Q 9 is true, you need the MR for Assault OR Battery. And you have your Mens Rea and Actus Reus muddles up, q 4, 5 and 13. 

But at least all the answers are correct for once. :)
