    ③ That's too low.

    Doesn't it really fit the blank? Does it only have to be positive answers? I can't understand the Korean test-maker.
    1. 1) Which doesn't belong?
    B: I got 30 on the math test.
    A: ____________. I hope you do better next time.

    ① Cheer up.
    ② That's too bad.
    ③ That's too low.
    ④ That's a shame.
    ⑤ I'm sorry to hear that.

    #3 is possible, though it's the least likely.

    Re: ③ That's too low.

    1. is only appropriate if there is some indication that the person is depressed or unhappy. There's no indication of this.
