This is a bit subtle, and perhaps it is more advanced than an A1 level test.
I notice in the summary of the text that Président has been capitalised. "Le Président visite un musée"
I believe this is incorrect and that this should not be capitalised in French:
le président français. = the French president.
Le président de la République française = The President of the French Republic.
Although if you were speaking to the President of France in direct address , you would address them as: "Monsieur le Président/Madame la Présidente (de la Republique).

Another Paul here to answer this. According to the following French learning site:
https://www.thoughtco.com/use-of-french-capitalization-4085543 the term "le Président" is indeed correct in the context of this exercise.
To copy the relevant section : Titles and occupations that replace a person's name are capitalized in French, such as le President or Madame la Directrice (madam director). By contrast, these terms are lowercase in English because only official titles that directly precede a proper noun are capitalized in English, never standalone titles.
As the first Paul said, the capitalisation rules are indeed "subtle".
