Is the second option correct? Do you have any suggestions to avoid using "etc.", especially for an academic exam?

The questionnaire was paper-based, and most of the questions were multiple-choice, although at the end we needed to answer two or three descriptive questions about the teacher’s abilities, knowledge, responsibilities, punctuality, etc.

...about the teacher’s abilities, knowledge, responsibilities, punctuality and the like.
