Synonyms & 曲

I’m sure this has been discussed, but there are too many synonyms and I don’t understand how they are different from one another. I wish this would be clearer. Such as 兵士&軍人;干渉&察知。

曲 also needs to be fixed to accept tune/music because it’s hard to remember if the radical or word means one or another…

This is my current understanding:

兵士 is more of a foot soldier.
軍人 is any military person, including higher level.

現代での使い分けを書きます。

軍人は、国家の正規軍の所属の、階級を与えられている人です。

兵士は、戦争のために集められた戦闘員。

From https://hinative.com/ja/questions/315126

These don’t really have anything to do with each other.
干渉 - interference, i.e. getting in the way of something
察知 - inference, i.e. knowledge you have inferred/guessed from something else.

What they have to do with each other is that they’re spelt similarly enough that WaniKani will give you an “eh, close enough” if you answer with the wrong one.
