Default What should be the tense of the answer while solving the questions of a comprehension

Dear members, i just studied a set of rules written on a page that was composed by an English professor. There was written that the answer to a comprehension's question should be in past tense. But then i went through a solved passage of Prof. Bukhari sb which was published in JWT magazine.
Now I am confused. Kindly guide me, should i answer in the past tense or what kind of tense should i use?

There is no hard and fast rule about usage of tenses in answers of comprehension. Only requirements are that you:
1. Use your own words
2. Write answers which are fully expressive, neither too broad nor too narrow
3. Don't repeat original phrases unless very necessary
4. Avoid adding ideas of your own unless asked in paper
