3.The word "E-pal" means someone you ...

4. Two-year contract with a possible extension according to the result of (a?) performace evaluation.

Great. Why did you put the definite article here for no.4? Couldn't it be the indefinite article "a" there?

You corrected:

4. Two-year contract with a possible extension according to the result of the performance evaluation.

Also, why do they have to be indefinite articles here?

In order to proceed further, you need to submit an Application for Exemption and a Residence Certificate.

I think the words "Application" and "Certificate" are generic (?) words and could make it possible for people to take the underlined phrases as one of the several, but I don't understand why it could not be definite articles.

I think if you switch the words "Residence Certificate" around and make it "Certificate of Residence" of an illustration purpose, I think what you need is a definite article, "the," in front of it like this:

In order to proceed further, you need to submit ... and the Certificate of Residence.
