Thank you! I used these and made up a few of my own after looking through Dr. Zhark Mobs wikia page:

You suddenly find yourself trapped in a Minecraft world. Which would you rather be, a zombie pigman or a spider jockey?

Write a story about a Mooshroom.

Which sword would you rather use against a werewolf, a diamond sword or a silver sword? Why?

How can you obtain a tame shark? Why would you want one?

Explain what you can create with shark teeth and how would you use the tool?
