Dear Sir,
When I gone through the ielts reading practice in cambridge book, I faced a doubt want to clarify.
There are 9 paragraphs total and question type is finding information(8 questions).
Is there any chance of getting 2 questions from one paragraph? If they did not mentioned instructions (you can use any letter more than once).

1. C: (The force was a success after its first year, and Colquhoun’s men had "established their worth by saving £122,000 worth of cargo and by the rescuing of several lives”. Word of this success spread quickly, and the government passed the Marine Police Bill on 28 July 1800, transforming it from a private to public police agency).
2. A: (The word "police" was borrowed from French into the English language in the 18th century).
3. B: (The idea of a police, as it then existed in France, was considered as a potentially undesirable foreign import).
4. B: (........to prevent rampant theft that was causing annual estimated losses of £500,000 worth of cargo).
