se encuentra en el sur de España, cerca del Mediterranean Sea - I wrote this for the first sentence “it is located at the south of Spain, near to the Mediterranean Sea”. My questions are: is se encuentra accepted? And how do we know if we should write it as a name for Mediterranean Sea or as El mar Mediterráneo? And does qué exclamation sentences always in plural? Thanks

We included the most simple answer using the verb "estar" which is used to say where things are located, as the intro is telling you this is one of the things that you will practise with this exercise. But you can also say "se encuentra en el sur del España" - or even "está situada/ubicada en el sur de España" - this is more advanced but completely correct.
For mar Mediterráneo, if there is a name for it in Spanish, we will always include the Spanish name, not the English translation: el mar Mediterráneo, el océano Atlántico, el mar Egeo, el mar Rojo...
The exclamation with qué can have singular or plural, it depends on the noun the adjective is referring to. In this case, you need the adjective in plural because it is referring to the plural noun mentioned before "broad beans" (the hint is mentioning this to help you out)
I hope this is now clear for you.
