      Furigana

    Correct Answer
    C. Romaji
    Explanation
    Romaji is the writing style in Japanese that uses Arabic letters. It is a system of writing Japanese words using the Roman alphabet. This style is often used for beginners learning Japanese or for transliterating Japanese words into English. Romaji allows non-Japanese speakers to read and pronounce Japanese words more easily. It is important to note that while Romaji is used in certain contexts, the main writing systems in Japanese are Kana and Kanji, which use characters specific to the Japanese language.

    In the Japanese writing system, the letter "V" is not used. The Japanese language primarily uses a combination of hiragana, katakana, and kanji characters. These characters represent syllables and words, and there is no specific character or sound equivalent to the letter "V" in the Japanese language. Therefore, "V" is not used in Japanese.
