I think they are all OK too, but I don't like the idea of using words that don't exist as some of the options, such as am'nt in Q2 and boughted in Q21. I've never come across non-existent words in any of the language tests I've ever seen or taken (English, Japanese, and French and German a long time ago at school), so I assume that it's considered bad practice.

This has two identical answers.
⑮ (   ) you meet Emily yesterday?  (ア) (イ) (ウ) (エ)
What are the choices here?

Thank you for your help, mdchachi, lothor and Michael2.
Oh, is it bad practice to put non-existent words in the multiple choices, Lothor?
I didn't know that.

Some students may not remember the correct form of irregular verbs. So I thought
it might be good to put non-existent past forms in the choices.

I'll change it. How about this?
