Japanese Power Level Test – Round 6
Directions (*Important Read*)
Reading: Write out the full sentence in kana.
Writing: Fill in the missing blank(s) with the most appropriate characters/word(s)
Listening: Listen to the audio sentence. Then transcribe (write out) the full sentence in either kana or kanji.
Speaking: Listen to the audio sentence. If the blank comes before the audio, say out loud what would result in the audio response. If the blank comes after the audio, say out loud what would be the most natural response to the audio.
I try to limit the realm of possibilities to only a few answers, but since it isn’t multiple choice, there will always be other possibilities. If you come up with a different answer, and want to know if this is also a correct, leave a comment below.
1. Each question is worth 1 base point.
2. When a question has multiple blanks or kanji, each blank or kanji is worth a fraction of a point (ex. .50, .33, .25, .20, etc).
3. In “Writing” and “Listening,” if there is kanji in the blank(s), and you can write them all out, add 0.25 bonus points (give yourself 1.25 points total)

Well, maybe next time ^^.
Thanks for creating this round.
Can this also be considered correct? I remember seeing somewhere that が and けど don’t always express a contradiction.
There are が uses that aren’t “but” uses, but here it wouldn’t work.
Could you elaborate some more? Or perhaps give me something I can refer to?
It’s a bit of a detailed topic, so you are probably better off checking out a website article that goes into detail on the more nuanced uses of kedo and ga (I don’t know any specific pages off hand). While it has these other uses, here it sounds awkward and wouldn’t work.
Understood. Thanks for your attention. I heard an explanation about this example from a native speaker, and I think I got why it wouldn’t work here. But, yes, I will look it up in more detail. Thanks again!
