Here are my comments. As usual, if I don't mention something, that means it looks OK to me.

Question 3 - In the question itself, change "Chose" to "Choose". (And add a space after it.) Also, rather than "most suitable one", I would say "most suitable word or phrase" or "most suitable answer from (a) to (d)", or something like that. "most suitable one" sounds a little strange here.
10 - I do not confidently know the applicable grammar rule here, but both (b) and (c) sound OK, and both are used by native speakers.
11 - "wonderful attitudes" is not incorrect, but sounds a bit strange. "wonderful attitude" is natural, so you could switch to that.
14 - Nothing is incorrect here, but we usually don't describe an earthquake as "hitting us". Just "hit" without "us" is more natural. Furthermore, (a) is the only possible correct answer, but it sounds a little strange to say this. Nobody is happy about an earthquake, so it is expected that anybody would be upset. It kind of goes without saying. For an English test, though, this is fine.
18 - "I have an impression" sounds slightly unnatural to me. For an English test, though, it is OK. It is more natural to say "It is my impression..."

Question 4
1 - "If it were not for your advice" is also OK here.
2 - Strictly speaking, architects DESIGN bridges, They do not build them. But what you have written is a reasonable translation of the Japanese version, so I think it is OK. Translating the Japanese perfectly would result in a complicated sentence.
4 - "I have been living in Japan for ten years" is also OK.

Thank you for your ongoing help, joadbres.

Question 3 - In the question itself, change "Chose" to "Choose". (And add a space after it.) Also, rather than "most suitable one", I would say "most suitable word or phrase" or "most suitable answer from (a) to (d)", or something like that. "most suitable one" sounds a little strange here.
"Chose" was a typo. But thanks for the other information. (In the exam, the question is in Japanese, though)

10 - I do not confidently know the applicable grammar rule here, but both (b) and (c) sound OK, and both are used by native speakers.
OK.I'll change it.
Is there any difference in meaning between "if it rains tomorrow morning" and "if it raining tomorrow morning"?

11 - "wonderful attitudes" is not incorrect, but sounds a bit strange. "wonderful attitude" is natural, so you could switch to that.
OK. I'll correct it.

14 - Nothing is incorrect here, but we usually don't describe an earthquake as "hitting us". Just "hit" without "us" is more natural. Furthermore, (a) is the only possible correct answer, but it sounds a little strange to say this. Nobody is happy about an earthquake, so it is expected that anybody would be upset. It kind of goes without saying. For an English test, though, this is fine.
OK. I'll omit "us".

18 - "I have an impression" sounds slightly unnatural to me. For an English test, though, it is OK. It is more natural to say "It is my impression..."
Would "It's my impression that Mike does not like you." be OK?

Question 4
1 - "If it were not for your advice" is also OK here.
Do you mean this sentence would also be correct?
"If it were not for your advice, I would have lost the game."

2 - Strictly speaking, architects DESIGN bridges, They do not build them. But what you have written is a reasonable translation of the Japanese version, so I think it is OK. Translating the Japanese perfectly would result in a complicated sentence.
Most of my students may not be able to write "design". So I've chosen "built".

4 - "I have been living in Japan for ten years" is also OK.
Thank you very much for your help.

I don't have much time now, so this is a quick answer.
The answers to your second and third questions are "yes".
The answer to your first question is "to me, they are identical". (if it IS raining...)

Yes. I've already noticed it, too. But I don't know how to correct it. This site is weird. In my original exam, there ARE spaces to put words in.
