Romaji : Kaze wo (hiite), kaisha wo yasumimashita.

Meaning : Because (I) catch a cold, I took a rest from (my) company.

1.やって 2.なって 3.ふいて 4.ひいて

Answer : 4

Based on the correct vocabulary, the correct answer is in the fourth option. The above expression, kaze wo hiite means to catch a cold. The verb derived from hiku (引く・ひく) and one of its meaning is to catch a cold if it is combined with kaze (かぜ) which means wind or breeze.


Romaji : Kore wa totemo (taisetsu na) mondai desu.

Meanig : This is really an important matter.

1.たいせつな 2.いろいろな 3.じゅうぶな 4.にぎやかな

Answer : 1

The correct answer is in the first option. Since, taisetsu is a keiyoudoushi (形容動詞・けいようどうし) or a –na type adjective. So, there is a rule which must be obey to use adjective modifying a noun. In this question, we are using adjective to describe a noun. The noun which is being discussed in this question is mondai (問題・もんだい) which means matters, things, problems. Below is the pattern :

Kanji      :形容動詞             + な + 動詞

Hiragana   :けいようどうし        + な + どうし

Romaji     :keiyoudoushi          + na + doushi

Meaning    :-na type adjective    + na + verb

Based on the question above, we describe that the problems, matters [mondai問題・もんだい] (noun) is very important [大切・たいせつ] (-na type adjective).


Romaji : Satou-san wa (tabun) konai deshou.

Meaning : Satou-san might not come.

1.ちょうど 2.すこし 3.たぶん 4.だんだん

Answer : 3

The above question is about expressing uncertainty. We want to express uncertainly we can useだろう orでしょう grammar pattern. This type of sentence pattern is also called affirmative sentence. By stating this kind of sentence, we actually still uncertain or not sure about a situation or a condition and we are asking for an affirmation from someone else by stating the affirmative sentence.

      The affirmative sentence can be divided into two types of pattern :

  1. Plain affirmative form (Using だろう)
  2. Polite affirmative form (Using でしょう)

Those kind of sentence can be used with たぶん which can translated as perhaps, maybe, might. It is used to emphasize the uncertainty.

The other option is a wrong answer. The first option choudo (ちょうど) means just, right, exactly is not appropriate with the uncertainty expression.

The second option sukoshi (すこし) means a little bit is not also expressing uncertainty. It is describing an exact description of a small amount.

The third option dandan (だんだん) is also not the right answer. Since, dandan is actually means gradually or a situation which is slowly changed and doesn’t relates with the uncertainty.


Romaji : Kuruma de uchi kara byouin made 20ppun (kakarimasu).

Meaning : It takes 20 minutes from home to the hospital by car.

1.かけます 2.かかります3。いります 4.います

The appropriate answer is in the second option. The other options are just false answers which is made to deceive.

The first option is a verb which is derived from a based-form dictionary kakeru (かける) that can be translated as to hang, to multiply it depends on the kanji form.

The third option, iru (いる), since it is a godan doushi (verb type I), it can be transformed into irimasu as shown in the third option and it can be translated as to need or to come in depends on the kanji form.

The fourth option, iru (いる), since it is an ichidan doushi (verb type II), it can be transformed into imasu as shown in the fourth option and it can be translated as to exist.


Romaji : Samukunattakara, (suto-bu) wo tsukete kudasai.

Meaning : Because it is already getting cold, please turn on the heater.

1.スリッパ 2。コート 3。テレビ 4.ストーブ

Answer : 4

The above question is also discussing about change but it is stated as already happened. We use verb なる to express change that happens or already happened.

Not only using verb naru(なる), but we also use kara (から) to express a reason in a sentence. It can be translated as because or since. Below is the pattern :

Kanji      : 文I            +から + 文II

Hiragana   : ぶんI           +から + ぶんII

Romaji     : bun I           +kara + bun II

Meaning    : 1st sentence     +kara + 2nd sentence

We will take the question’s to fit on the pattern :

Kanji      : [文I           = 寒くなった。]

Hiragana   : [ぶんI         = さむくなった。]

Romaji     : [bun I          = samukunatta.]

Meaning    : [1st sentence    = it is getting cold already.]
