1.むずかしいないです。 2.むずかしいでは ないです。 3.むずかしくないです。 4.むずかしく なくです。

Answer : 2

Hiragana : Kono tesuto wa (muzukashiku nai desu).

Meaning : This test is not difficult.

The above question is all about making an adjective into a negative form. First of all, we need to know the type of the adjective in the question above. The adjective is むずかしいwhich is a 形容詞(けいようし)or known as –i adjective. To make an –i adjective into a negative form, we have to follow the following pattern:



i adjective

In the sentence, we have :


i adjective : むずかしい

So, based on the format the correct answer is the first option.

2. この へやは ____ひろいです。

1.しずかの 2.しずかな 3.しずかに 4.しずかで

Answer : 4

Hiragana : Kono heya washizuka dehiroi desu.

Meaning : This room is quiet and spacious.

We use to connect a 形容動詞(けいようどうし)or what we known as  na adjective with another adjective. So, the pattern will be :

A +形容動詞         +another adjective+です

A (けいようどうし)+another adjective+です

Ana adjectiveanother adjective+です


In this sentence :

この へや+は+しずか+で+ひろい+です

A :この へや

形容動詞(けいようどうし)na adjective:しずか


3. あの 子は えを ____かきます。

Answer : 3

Hiragana : Ano ko wa e wo (jyouzu) ni kakimasu.

Meaning : That child is cleverly draw the picture.

When an adjective is modifying a verb in Japanese language we have to see the type of adjective. Since じょうぶis a keiyoudoushi or usually called ―な けいようし (–na adjective)


Format :

形容動詞       + に + 動詞

(けいようどうし)+ に  +  どうし

(-na adjective) + に + verb


So, based on the format in this question the proper answer is :

じょうず + に + かきます。

na adjective : じょうず

verb which is modified :かく(to write, to drawwhich is in –masu form in this sentence (かきます).

It means that the drawing is smartly drawn.


4.もう すこし _____ あるいて ください。

1.はやい 2.はやく 3.はやくて 4.はやいに

Answer : 2

Hiragana : Mou sukoshi (hayaku) aruite kudasai.

Meaning : Please walk a litte bit faster.

When an adjective is modifying a verb in Japanese language we have to see the type of adjective. Since はやいis a keiyoushi or usually called –i adjective, it has to follow the pattern below :


Format :

形容動詞       + (い) + 動詞

けいようし      +  (い)  + どうし

(–i adjective) + い)  + く  + verb


So, based on the format in this question the proper answer is :

はや + く +  あるいて。

i adjective           : はや

verb which is modified : あるく(to walkwhich is in –masu

form in this sentence (あるいて).

It means walk fast.


5. 先生は きのう ____。

1.げんきに ありませんでした。 2.げんきに なくでした 

3.げんきでは ありませんでした。 4.げんきでは なくてでした。

Answer : 3

Hiragana : Sensei wa kinou (genki dewa arimasendeshita).

Meaning : Yesterday the teacher didn’t feel well.

This is another questions in order to make a negative adjective. First, we have to determine what type of the adjective is. Then we can decide the suitable pattern to change it into a negative form. Since げんきis a keiyoudoushi or usually called けいようどうし (–na adjective).

This is how we change it to a negative form :


形容動詞               + では ありません

(けいようどうし)       + では ない

(-na adjective)        + じゃ ありません

+ じゃ ない


In this sentence, the correct answer will be one of these pattern below :

げんき+では ありません

げんき+じゃ ありません

げんき+では ない



So, the correct answer will be the third option by adding でした since it is past tense. We can conclude that the sentence is in the past since there is (yesterdayas the time marker which indicate a condition or an activity happens in the past.


6. ゆうびんきょうくへきってを ____に 行きます。

1.かわ。 2.かう。 3.かって。 4.かい。

Answer :

Hiragana : Yuubinkyoku e kitte wo kai ni ikimasu.

Meaning : (I) go to the post office to buy a stamp.

This is another form of sentence which has a certain meaning

Format :

動詞(ます) + に+いく


It means going to do something which is defined in doushi(動詞)。Where doushi is a verb in a –masu form, instead of spelling the –masu part, we erase it and add に+いく in the end.

In the sentence :

動詞(どうし):かい(ます)It is actually derived from かう which means to buy. So, the whole meaning of the pattern in the sentence will be to go buying something.


7. きのう えいがを ____から どう しましたか。

1.見て 2.見ます 3.見 4.見る

Answer :

Hiragana : Kinou eiga wo (mite) kara dou shimashitaka.

Meaning : Yesterday right after watching movie what did you do?

This is another form of –から as a certain format describing sequence of activity right after another


Format :

動詞(どうし)-て 計+て +から+動詞(どうし)

(Verb 1) in –te form  +て +kara(Verb 2)

 From the following pattern above, we can conclude the full sentence will be :

きのう えいがを見てからどうしましたか

Verb 1 : 見て

Verb 2 : しましたか

Verb 2 is in interrogative form and written in the past form since we have kinou (yesterday) as the time marker of the sentence. So, yesterday right after watching movie, the speaker want to find out the activity that the other person done.

8. あした わたしは プールで ____たいです。

1.およが。 2.およぎ。 3.およ。 4.およぐ。

Answer :

Hiragana : Ashita watashi wa pu-ru de (oyogi)tai desu.

Meaning : Tomorrow I want swim in the pool. To express something that we want to do in Japanese language, we are using the form below :

動詞+ます +たい

およぎます + たい

That sentence expresses the speaker’s wish
to do a certain activity which is swimming in the pool.

9.ここでは たばこを ___ ください。

1.すわないで。 2.すわなくて。 3.すわない。 4.すわなく。

Meaning : Please don’t smoke here.


Format : 動詞+ない+でください

correct answer :


It means please do not smoke.

10.わたしは きのう うちへ ____とき、かいしゃで ともだちに かさを かりました。

1.帰り。 2.帰る。 3.帰って。4.帰った。

Answer :

Hiragana : Watashi wa kinou uchi e (kaeru) toki, kaisha de tomodachi ni kasa wo

Meaning : Yesterday when I want to go home, at the office I borrowed my friend’s umbrella.


When we are making sentence using とき, one of the possible answer is in the following format.

Format :

動詞 (どうし)plain form          +とき

Verb (plain form) or Verb (-ta form) +とき


The verb is actually in a plain form either present or past. So, we can actually use 帰るor 帰った. It will be awkward to choose 帰ったwhich means when the speaker have already back home, because it is impossible for the speaker to borrow an umbrella from his friend at the office. So the correct answer will be帰るwhich means when the speaker want to get back home, he borrowed his or her friend’s umbrella.


11.わたしの 父は しんぶんを ____ながら ごはんを たべます。

1.読む 2.読んで。 3.読ま。 4.読み。

Answer :

Hiragana : Watashi no chichi wa shinbun wo (yomi) nagara gohan wo tabemasu.

Meaning : My father is eating rice while reading the newspaper.

To express doing two activity at the same time, we can use the following format :

動詞(どうし)-ます 計+なから+動詞(どうし)

(Verb 1) in –masu form  +nagara(Verb2)

Verb 1:読み (-ます 計)

Verb たべます

The first verb is in the stem of masu verb (-masu form) which is followed by nagara means while doing the activity describes in the verb, reading a newspaper in the above sentence the speaker also doing another activity which is eating rice.


12.「コーヒー、もう いっぱい いかがですか。」「いいえ、けっこうです。まだ 入って ___から。」

Answer : 3

Hiragana : Koohii, mou ippai ikagadesuka ? Iie, kekkou desu. Mada haitte arimasu kara.

Meaning : Coffee, how about another cup? No, that is enough. It’s because there are coffee still inside.

We are using arimasu since the verb is a jidoushi (intransitive verb). Intransitive verb is a verb which doesn’t take any object of the action. The verb is 入ってwhich is read ‘haitte’. It is derived from 入る and it means enter or insert. It is not important who poured in the coffee inside the cup since the replied answer is there are enough coffee already.

Hiragana : Gohan wo (tabeta) atode,
kusuri wo nomimasu.

Meaning : After (I) ate, (I) drink the medicine.

When we make a sentence with the form of atode, the verb before has to be changed into –ta form or a past form.

Format :

      (動詞) ~た計    + あとで

(どうし)~たけい + あとで

       Verb –ta formatode


    So, the suitable answer is(tabeta) atode 「たべた あとで 食べた あとで」
