Does each question have only one answer?
For ⑨, "watch anime" is more natural than "see anime". If you change this question, the answer is still the same.
For ⑫, I cannot confidently say that イ is wrong. It might be OK. I am not sure. I recommend changing this answer to something else which is clearly wrong.
For ⑮, it seems to me that both ア and ウ are OK.
For ⑯, several of the answers are grammatically OK, but only one answer is correct in context. The problem, therefore, is OK as it is now, provided that the directions you give your students clearly tell them to choose the best answer.
For ⑰, some native speakers use the expression "going to [場所] for the summer". For this problem as it is written now, イ is the best answer, but you might want to change エ to something else which is clearly wrong.

Everything else looks OK to me.

「最も適当な語句」: good!
⑨⑫⑮: good!
⑰: "over the summer" is also an expression we sometimes use.
I recommend changing "(エ) over" to "(エ) by".

Thanks, joadbres. I changed ⑰(エ) over to (エ) by.

Thanks to you all, I finished making the first exam. I have to make two more. Sigh...
