Best answer

difficulty of the questions was compensated by an increase in time

This makes sense as with more time one can expect to solve more difficult questions.

  • "exactitude" means high level of correction and it won't be magnified by an increase in time
  • "aptitude" of the questions also does not decrease with an increase in time.
  • "attitude" of the question does not make sense.

Correct Option: A
