Questions about Iran application form

Hello, first time applicant for non-western visas here. So I'm looking at this application form for an Iranian visa and some of the fields to be filled make no sense at all. Some seem not to apply to me, such as "name of spouse" as I'm single, so I guess I'll just leave that one blank. Others though, like "name of fellow travellers in passport" "area of your knowledge and information about Iran" "name of persons and organisations you are going to meet in Iran" and some others, I just don't understand whether to leave them blank, type 'none' or what they even mean. Others, I sort of get but still not really, like "border of entry into Iran", do they want the name of the previous country, the name of the border post or something else? I've added a picture of the application form to this post. Any help is much appreciated :)

Hi, since it is the first time you are applying for a visa, let me warn you, it is always like that. A lot of weird questions that don't make any sense. Just fill them in as best as you can, and write a / if there is no applicable answer. Don't worry too much about getting it wrong: none of this info makes it into your visa. As soon as you get your visa, you have everything you need to go to Iran.

For border post, indeed, the exact name of the border town where you intend to cross is what is meant.

"Fellow travelers in passport" means underage children traveling on your passport, btw.

Thank you :) and I guess it's best not to tick any boxes about politics or journalism?
