    No. 676 says that group is グループ but the romaji says guru-bu. I’m assuming it is guru-PU, with a P.

    No. 744 shows that mondai is how you pronounce 宿題, but according to Jisho.com it’s しゅくだい (shukudai)

    No. 788 has the same description as 785. But Jisho says that 788 means “reply; answer; response​” not view, perspective.

    I’m pretty sure that No. 819 should be kanarazu, not hanarazu.

    doesnt 218 okiru mean ‘wake up’? occur should be okoru instead

      okiru means wake up, and also occur. okosu mean make some events occur
      事故がおきた : accident happened (occured). 事故をおこした make an accident happened
