    Actually, grade 8 music theory is not that difficult for a engineering researcher like me. As most of the questions provide ample hints for you to predict the direction and flow of the music, not much creativity is involved. I was also lucky that the exam questions are a little bit easier than the practice exercises so I could get 82/100 at that time.

    Yes, there's still a lot for me to explore and learn in music. That's why I create this post to seek help. Could you mind to answer my question regarding the chord progression starting from bar 5 for the second exercise? You seem to be a professional musician, your comments will surely help.

    Don't worry that I will waste my time doing the exercises in this book. I am just using it to kill time anyway, so as long as it can keep me busy during some free time slots it's fine for me.
    But I will take your valuable advice as my next step after I finish this book.

    hard to have a mutual agreement when it comes to this kind of music
    simply try all reasonable ways to harmonize them and pick the one you like
    eventually you need to go through tons of trial & error to develop your own musicianship
    but I suggest doing that later

    quit doing these EX. and go find some classical music MIDI and a proper software
    it could be Cubase, Reaper, Guitar Pro, MuseScore, Overture, Notion...etc
    finding + getting used to these stuff will kill a lot of your time
    MIDI is one of the most powerful tool for expanding your writing knowledge

    read free counterpoint/orchestration texts when you are unable to access to PC

    if you are serious about music
    do it in an efficient way
