Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which ending do you use for "ar" verbs? 

    • A.

      Ando

    • B.

      Er

    • C.

      Ir

    Correct Answer
    A. Ando
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "ando" because the ending "ando" is used for "ar" verbs in Spanish. When conjugating verbs that end in "ar" in the present participle form (-ing form), you replace the "ar" with "ando". For example, the verb "hablar" (to speak) becomes "hablando" (speaking) in the present participle form.

    The correct answer is "iendo". In Spanish, the ending "iendo" is used for the present participle form of "er/ir" verbs. This form is used to express an ongoing action. For example, the verb "comer" (to eat) would become "comiendo" (eating) in the present participle form.

    • C.

      Maria estaba comiendo.

    Correct Answer
    B. Maria estaba corriendo.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Maria estaba corriendo" because the phrase "estaba corriendo" is in the past progressive tense in Spanish, which indicates an ongoing action in the past. The verb "estaba" is the past tense of the verb "estar" (to be) and "corriendo" is the present participle of the verb "correr" (to run). Therefore, the sentence translates to "Maria was running."

    Correct Answer
    A. I was riding.
    Explanation
    The sentence "Estaba montando" translates to "I was riding" in English. It implies that the speaker was engaged in the act of riding something, such as a bike or a horse. The other options, "I was working" and "I was painting," do not accurately convey the meaning of the original sentence.
