a JLPT sentence (again)

Post by katafei » Sat 06.26.2010 7:46 am

息子は新しいおもちゃに夢中だが.....おきるだろう。
1. いきなり
2. ひとまず
3. じきに
4. ひとりでに
Spoiler:
the right answer is 3. じきに
But I don't really understand what the sentence is supposed to mean....:

My son will soon be totally absorbed in his new toy, or will he soon 'wake up' from this absorption,. i.e. get bored with it???
Any comment will again be very welcome... 8)

Excuse me but I assume that is a typo.
息子は新しいおもちゃに夢中だが.......きるだろう。

If not, I have to say that the test maker is not good at Japanese. :P
