      1. I answered C kasi ang pagkakaalala ko the CA does not issue summons rather orders or resolution ang issue nila kaya yun ang nasagot ko.

      2. Now definitely im sure i remember my answer, it was really C aside from the reason you gave not sure ang reason ko is sabi ng professor ko you just dont immediately answer this kind of petitions or you dont need to voluntarily appear because the Court itself might find the petition not meritorious to warrant its consideration, so kung sasagot ka on your own para ka lang nagsayang ng oras at papel when in fact the petition was denied outright.
