It's presenting hiragana as options but when clicking on the words it presents kanji. It doesn't help if you haven't remembered them yet.

This is where radicals can help, like noticing the 尸 and the 羊 in the first kanji.

could "osoi" also be used as "late"? as in "kare wa osoi desu ka" meaning "is he late"?

For "slow", the dictionary hints only show Kanji but not Hiragana. If I don't remember the word, additional Hiragana would be helpful.

This is exactly what I entered, but it marked me wrong.

あそいですか. Returns faulty answe, even though it's correct.

it's おそい not あそい
