Hi may I know the mark allocation for the sub-parts of this question? Is it possible to include the mark allocation for future questions too?

will try, cos i gave out 2016 prelims to my students and most of these solutions are meant for their independent checking.

Can I also confirm that “y le r” refers to “y is a real number”?
