Yes, it is an acceptable response! More than acceptable, in fact. Musically, there are no errors, you have recognised the key and the underlying harmony is simple, but strong. However, I think you would have sacrificed some marks because you have not composed a rhythm; you have simply copied the opening.
I find your diminuendo in the middle a bit odd, but perhaps that's just me. Also I wondered whether you could have used down bows for the last three notes? But I'm not a string player. Perhaps some dynamics in bars 5-8 would have been a good idea?
One small thing: your flat sign is a little on the large size!
So I think this would have got a good mark, but possibly not 10/10.
I pretty much agree with this.
I can't comment on the bowing except to say if you are not a string player don't put any in.
Same for any instrument specific markings.
