2M is the correct answer. The shape 2445M will still give you a 36M wait even if you discard 2M, so 2M is the correct choice.
4P is the correct answer. Even if you discard the 4P, you are still able to utilize a 3P in any case your draw it, and you can also call Haku for a Pon-Ten (Pon to become Ten-Pai).
3S is the correct answer. At first, you may think that there is no difference between your choices, but between a 4 and7, and 1 and 4, the 1 and 4 wait is stronger. So solidifying the Riyan-Men and discarding the 3S is the right choice.
4,5S is the correct answer. 3S may also be an option, but since a 789 San-Shyo-Ku is possible, solidifying the Jan-Tou and discarding the 4 or 5S is the right choice.
5P is the correct answer. The question is to decide wether to solidify the Pinzu or Souzu as your Jan-Tou (Atama/Pair). If you are waiting on a Ryann-Men of 4 and 7 or 1 and 4, a 1 and 4 wait is stronger. So solidifying the 1 and 4 wait will be better, thus discarding the 5P is the correct choice.
8P is the correct answer. This the 6 Block Method question. You would want to discard 68P or 57S, but 57S will give you 2 tiles that would change it into a Riyan-Men (48S), so discarding 8P is the correct choice. You are able to draw 5P and make it a Riyan-Men too, so discard 8P first.
4M is the correct answer. Discarding 4M without overthinking is the correct choice. Let’s try to remember the priority like this: Riyan-Men > Sha-Bo・Kan-Chan・Pen-Chan.
1S is the correct answer. In this 1334S situation, 2S and 5S are still tiles that you can use, even if you discard the 1S.
4S is the correct answer. Since the 667M shape can accept the 58M that includes the Dora, you would not want to solidify this as your Jan-Tou, discarding 4S is the correct choice.
3S is the correct answer. Although the comparisson may be small, 3S and 5S have 2 different tiles that can attach to them and become a Ryan-Men. So if you think about how many effective tiles can attach to the remaining tiles, solidifying this factor will be more efficient.
