That's fine, but although you have posted your assignment you haven't
asked us a question. What is it you want to know? What is it that
puzzles you about the assignment? Have you made a start? What code do
you have? Do you get error messages? If so include them in your post.

[ Although I do note that your assignment is labeled as 3 questions
when it is, in fact, 3 exercises. Personally I would worry about a
course where the course tutors are so illiterate as to not understand
the difference. Or worse, don't care!]

The X and Y coordinates of these points must be random float between a range and any arbitrary range will be fine. (Hint: random.uniform can be used to generate a random floating point value between any two given numbers.)

If a point is exactly on the middle of the area, you are free to decide to either count it in the left half, or right half. Please note in your program how which is the case.
