I just took Part III. The questions were eye-rollingly simplistic :roll: , so I spent only a few minutes and a few sentences to answer them, and walked out with about an hour to spare. Each question was a single sentence, and were things that I covered in the documents in my assignment anyway.
Also, if you think about it, Part III must not count significantly towards the grade, since they don't make you retake it if you fail Part II/III. Let's say that you did really poorly on both Part II and Part III. Your diagrams were a mess, and your four essays totaled 16 words, for an average of four words per essay, e.g. "Duh, I think so." You get your grade back a month later, and it's 0%. You are required to only resubmit your assignment. No matter how bad your essay was, you can't make it up. That means that your essay can't possibly count, or else you would never pass ever again, no matter how good your assignment resubmission was, or if you resubmitted the assignment every month, forever and ever, until the end of the universe.

It is just an easy way that sun makes another $150 for every candidate.

Actually, the purpose (or one of them) is to make sure you did the work on Part II.
As I understand it, the questions ask for several ways to accomplish a task - one of which must be how you did it in the Part II assignment. Then justify why you did it.
