    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.
