Which preposition is correct to the following context? I want to write to my friend to read the story and to answer questions which comes after the story. Now the options that I can think about are:

"Read the following story and answer the questions afterward"

"Read the following story and answer the following questions" (too much "following")

"Read the following story and answer the questions follow this story"

Which style is correct or common and easy to understand, if any? or you have other suggestion for my need.

It depends. In the sense of time flow, afterward/afterwards is better. It would be the same as after that.

Read the following story and answer the questions after that.

In the sense of location, follow is better. I think you mean the latter, so maybe

Read the following story and answer the questions that follow.
