In Q3 'people' is the normal plural of person and since the 'a lot of' comes before, it must be plural. Persons, as a plural, can be used sometimes but it is normally in formal contexts or in signs.

very enlightening test,but there is one thing missing, we cant see our mistakes, so as long as we don't know where we did a mistake , how can we improve our self. i hope you work on it and add this feature.
