    - in problem 6 blank d, it would not be wrong to choose 'in'. I think it is simplest to remove '(ア) in ' from the list of possible answers, or replace it with something else.

    - in problem 6, question (9) (should it be question 8?), in choice (b), change 'health problem' to 'health problems'. (@mdchachi already made this comment in another thread)

    - in problem 6, question (9), choice (d), change 'TFT recognized' to 'TFT recognizes'.

    - in problem 7, '同じものは選ばないこと', are words missing here? 何回も?

    - in problem 7, (9) (b), change 'joind' to 'joined' (@mdchachi already made this comment in another thread)

    - in problem 7, (9) (d), change 'recognize' to 'recognizes' (@mdchachi already made this comment in another thread)

    - in problem 8, (2) is the word 'it' missing?

    - in problem 9, (2), it seems that at least four words are needed. I recommend changing '3~5' to '4~6' ('Most students here are' or 'Most of the students here are')

    - 'Making English exams are always hard for me.' Change to 'Making English exams is always hard for me.'

    Thank you very much for your great effort, joadbres.
    It looks like I'm being tired. Sorry.

    hirashin Sempai

    Sorry, joadbrres. I have a question.
    What do you mean by that? I want the students to chose each choice only once here. That's why I put '同じものは選ばないこと'.
    Yes. I'll follow your advice. I'll omit "in". Thanks for the useful suggestion.

    Yes, you are right. I've corrected it.
      This (   )(   )(   )(   )(   )(   )(   ).
     (ア)designed (イ)building (ウ)so that (エ)easily (オ)can use it (カ)is (キ)disabled people
    Yes, you are right. I omitted "here". I've changed it into 4~6 words.

    Would you check my answers to Question 9 as well?
    1 We had plenty of rain last month.
    2 Most (of the) students here are from Africa.
    3 My dictionary includes eighty thousand words.
    4 He thought that things and places should be easy for everyone/anyone to use.
    5 The Internet can connect us to the world.

    Yes, I understood what you want. I wasn't sure if the Japanese phrase you wrote clearly conveyed that instruction to your students, as it sounded a little confusing to me. I am not a native Japanese speaker, though, so if you are satisfied that your instruction is fine, then of course it is.

    They are all fine. I could understand that these are the answers you intended when I originally read your questions.

    Just so you know, use of the word 'plenty' often includes a nuance of a good thing, rather than an undesirable thing. I probably would not have used the word 'plenty' when translating the 9 (1) sentence, but as you instruct your students to use that word, it is OK, and no changes are needed.

    Thanks for your ongoing help, joadbres.

    I hadn't known that when I made that question. But a native speaker in another site taught me the difference between "a lot of" and "plenty of". I should have known that.
