I don't get the chord progression explanation. Because they tell me about grades and stuff, what I already figured out in previous lessons. And once i start the test they play 5 chords and i have figure out which one by listening. I don't know how the explanation can help me figure out how they sound

First of all, well done to have come this far in Sonid!
Answering chord progression questions by ear can be very challenging at first.
To play progressions by ear first try to determine the key, ie major or minor, and where the progression ends so that you have a reference to the tonic. Knowing the key will make sure you use the right degrees in it. (for instance knowing G major key has G Am Bm C D Em F#mb5 and hearing an E in the bass would assume the chord is Em)
After that listen to the bass notes of the the progressions. When you've found those you can combine your theoretical knowledge about the key and your hearing into the right chord progression.
When advancing further with hearing progressions alternative chords might be used and you will need to be better at hearing which chord is on the bass note. For instance, the third degree in C major might be replaced by E7 (instead of the Em which is normally on the third degree of C major). Although in Sonid this is very limited for now, more lessons about progressions will come later.
