Beholdmyswarthyface Japanese Literature Examination (Round 5)

This just in from Cniva Albinus:
Hey Beholdmyswarthyface, 

I recently heard that Round 5 of the Beholdmyswarthyface Japanese Literature Exam is being circulated among your friends and colleagues. I was hoping you could post it online so that we--the readers of your blog--could also take it. I didn't score too well on the third one, so I was hoping to do better on this round. Thank you. -Cniva Albinus.


I don't know how you heard about this, but sure thing. Here's the test. If you'd like us to grade it, just send your answers to our email address in PDF format. Good luck! And remember, the test was intended for undergraduates, so it might be too easy for you. Best, Sally Suzuki
