comment 生け花をします does it mean to practice flower arranging?
@yadokari: just a suggestion, but for someone studying from Minna no Nihongo (beginner book), you might want to avoid the casual 今、何してんの? because it may be confusing for that level.

comment Translating: “一人でも多くの方にコメントしていただけたら嬉しいので ”
@phoenixheart6: The particle for もらう・いただく (to receive) is に because に points to the source of the thing you are receiving. You can also use から, but I hear/see that a lot less frequently. Using は or が shows who is doing the receiving. 私はXさんに本をもらう → I will get/receive a book from Xさん.

[[ I don't want to poach the answer spot that yadokari and oldergod should get, but in my experience, 送る has definitely been used. ]] Why not? They didn't bother to make their thoughts an answer.

comment How does the use of いかんによっては in this question determine one answer over another?
@DaveMG: Yes, I want to understand Japanese as much as possible too. But like I said before, I think that'd make a better question on its own (my opinion), because you could explore the whole "realm" of は, not just in how it relates to 〜いかんによって.

comment How does the use of いかんによっては in this question determine one answer over another?
@DaveMG: I think that would better be a question of it's own, and that your original question "How does the use of いかんによっては in this question determine one answer over another?" HAS been answered; since it's a JLPT question, the two forms (one with and one without the は) carry two different meanings. So knowing those meanings helps you choose the correct answer on the test.

comment Grammar problem
Welcome to JLU! This sounds too much like a "Please translate for me" question, which usually get closed. I suggest rewording your question to include what you think might be correct, why you think so, and then ask for any pointers. "Show your research" as it were.
