Error in Mock Exam

Q: I am solving the mock exam that you provided in order to study for the exam and I bumped into an ambiguous question, in particular:
  Explain how flow control is implemented in the TCP protocol, and simulate 5 rounds of flow control for two network flows A and B, starting at 70% and 0% of the network utilization, respectively. 

I cannot understand what should we simulate, the sliding window algorithm that TCP uses for flow control or the AIMD ?

A: This question contains an error, it should be "congestion control" instead of "flow control". Thanks for pointing this out!
