Names of the weekdays are not the issue here. Can you help us make an informed choice about the synonyms we're dealt, so we no longer need to guess? E ʻoluʻolu.

Sometimes ho'ike is used for "test" in these lessons

And I just guessed "test" for this one and got it correct as an alternate. Since when are "test" and "show" synonyms?

Tried "presentation" for this one, but this time they wanted "show." Why does it seem that this is always up to a random guess?

I'm gonna guess that the reason I never get answers for these questions is because no one knows the rationale for choosing among show, test, and presentation. So I still don't know the answer - which makes the rest of the similar questions about a given issue just that much more confusing.
