    NEUTER NOUN: das T-ShirtDas weiß_ T-Shirt ist praktisch.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "weiße". In German, the adjective "weiß" (meaning white) needs to agree in gender, number, and case with the noun it modifies. Since "T-Shirt" is a neuter noun, the adjective also needs to be in the neuter form, which is "weiße".

    NEUTER NOUN: das T-ShirtIch möchte das weiß__ T-Shirt kaufen.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "e" because the blank space should be filled with "e" to match the neuter noun "das T-Shirt" in the accusative case. The adjective "weiß" also needs to agree with the gender and case of the noun, so it remains unchanged.

     PLURAL: die Stiefel Die braun___ Stiefel sind alt.

    Explanation

In this sentence, "Stiefel" is the plural form of "der Stiefel" (the boot), and "braunen" is the correct plural form of the adjective "braun" (brown). Therefore, the sentence should be "Die braunen Stiefel sind alt."

  • 11. 

    FEMININE NOUN: die MützeIch möchte die blau___ Mütze kaufen. 

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "e". In German, the adjective endings change depending on the gender, case, and number of the noun they are describing. In this case, "blau" is an adjective describing the noun "Mütze" (hat) which is a feminine noun. When the adjective is describing a feminine noun in the accusative case, it takes the ending "-e". Therefore, the correct form is "blaue".

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    NEUTER NOUN: das HemdIch möchte das blau___ Hemd kaufen.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "e" because "blau" is an adjective that describes the noun "Hemd" (shirt) and in German, neuter nouns are preceded by the article "das". Therefore, the correct form of the adjective is "blaue" to match the neuter gender of the noun.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    NEUTER NOUN: das HemdIch möchte ein neu___ Hemd kaufen.

    Explanation
    In this sentence, the speaker wants to buy a new shirt. The word "Hemd" is a neuter noun in German, so the correct pronoun to use is "es".
