I’m having trouble with exercises 16-17 of the test. Why, for example, in exercise 16, third line, should there be A after the A#? If we raise A# a semitone we find B, not A.


Read the notes, their sequence and think whether the movement is clockwise or anticlockwise around the note circle.

Your understanding is fine, the question contains a trap that you need to navigate around.

Ahhhh, it’s just counterclockwise… the sequence of notes in this case goes counterclockwise… so it’s normal that A# becomes A! Thanks a lot for the clarification! <3
