comment 夏目漱石‘s use of question marker かい for an open instead of closed (ie yes/no) question
It seems to hold but am I right in thinking that for question 8 of the quiz, かい is also correct but の is more natural (and therefore の is the correct answer)? [The answer to my question, in the comment above, seems to be either (1) that (な)のかい is more natural than かい but it is not necessarily wrong. (2) There is misprint.]

comment Are there any restrictions on the usage of the て-form as a continuation?
It is a good topic but at the moment you stand to get somebody just reproducing their text book.

comment Are there any restrictions on the usage of the て-form as a continuation?
This question is too broad. You can't just join any two sentences with the てーform. Do you have a particular case in mind where you don't understand why the てーform does not work or you think it should work but you are told it does not?

comment Are all 3 sentences the same?
I have added a new comment to your original question but have considered the chat room? I know you were advised to ask a new question or revise the existing question but possibly you do not understand the existing answer and just need to clarify.

comment Using “page” in these sentences? (using counters and の to modify a noun)
@Noir : I have extended the explanation. (BTW: Akami, I think you mean "modifies the noun" not "has a direct object", the object belongs to the verb.)
