When ratio_dark is 1, the advice says "there are 1 dark chocolates". You could either write two versions for the singular and plural cases, or make sure ratio_dark is always greater than 1.

part a you are missing a full stop after box
when I did the question part b calculated there were 14 of every kind then part d said there was 15 coconut, not that important it just didn't flow between questions
in the advice, part b I think it would look better if you aligned method 1 and method 2?
part c I don't think the first few lines of working are useful as they don't contribute to the answer and I don't kniw whether the just add confusion
part d in the question only accepts simplified answer but you haven't explained or stated in the advice what the simplified version is or how to get to it.other than that great question!

Nearly there...
In your advice, where you are simply inputting numbers into sentences, you can use "
there were {} nutty
", rather than "there were $\var{n}$ nutty
". Inserting the number in LaTeX changes the font typeface, which is not necessary here.I would drop part (e) altogether on this one (probability) as it is a step beyond the core topics that you are assessing (ratios and percentages).

Statement"There is an equal distribution of chocolates throughout the box." seems either clunky or ambiguous to me. Maybe "The box contains equal numbers of each kind of chocolate."
PartsIn part c, you want each kind as a proportion of the remaining chocolates. You could say "what percentage of the remaining chocolates are plain?"
In part d, put the i) and ii) in italic or bold to make them stand out.
In part e, I would prefer "$\Pr(\text{Nutty chocolate picked}) = $" to "Probability = ". Set precision restrictions on the gaps  2 decimal places for the first one, and 0 decimal places for the second one.
Advice"Whole complete" is a tautology. You could say "100% represents the whole box of chocolates".
In the advice for part b, rather than "You know that each type of chocolate is represented equally in the box, so you need to find 20% of the original number of chocolates." you could say "We worked out above that each type of chocolate makes up 20% of the box, so we need to work out 20% of {chocs}".
In part c, I'd replace the first sentence with "There are now {type} fewer chocolates in the box, leaving {chocs}{type} = {minusc}."
Part d: NEVER use the word "simply"! No matter what you're talking about, there will always be a student for whom it isn't simple, and saying so won't make them feel great. Cutting out the word "simply" leaves a perfectly acceptable sentence. And again you've got "amount" where it should be "number". "Amount" is used for continuous measurements, while "number" is used for discrete numbers of objects.
Part e: "The amount of chocolates in the box is equal to {a}" is a clunky way of saying "There are {a} chocolates left in the box". You might want to put "(to 2 decimal places)" after the calculation.
You've got some stray bits formatted as headers instead of paragraphs.

To account for errors made by the student in earlier calculations, replace question variables with answers to earlier parts.
In order to create a variable replacement, you must define at least one variable and one other part.

The variable replacements you've chosen will cause the following variables to be regenerated each time the student submits an answer to this part:
These variables have some random elements, which means they're not guaranteed to have the same value each time the student submits an answer. You should define new variables to store the random elements, so that they remain the same each time this part is marked.
