Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    ________ en retard pour le dîner.

    • A.

      Ne fais pas

    • B.

      Ne soyez pas

    • C.

      N'ayez pas

    • D.

      N'êtes pas

    Correct Answer
    B. Ne soyez pas
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Ne soyez pas." This is because the phrase "en retard pour le dîner" translates to "late for dinner" in English. The verb "être" (to be) is used to express being late, and in this case, the imperative form "soyez" is used to address multiple people. The negation "ne" is added before the verb to indicate "do not be" late for dinner.

    Ce monsieur? Quel âge _______?

    • A.

      A-t-il

    • B.

    • C.

      Fait-il

    • D.

      Va-t-il

    Correct Answer
    A. A-t-il
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "a-t-il." In French, to ask someone's age, we use the phrase "Quel âge a-t-il?" which translates to "How old is he?" The expression "a-t-il" is the correct form of the verb "avoir" (to have) in the interrogative form, which is used to ask questions.

    • A.

      Allez

    • C.

      Vas

    • D.

      Aie

    Correct Answer
    B. Va
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Va." This is because the sentence is in the imperative form, which is used to give commands or instructions. In this case, the command is directed towards a singular person, "tu" (you), so the correct verb form is "va" (go).

    Rate this question:

    Je vais _____ une amie à ton pique-nique et nous allons ______ des boissons.

    • A.

      Amener / remmener

    • B.

      Apporter / amener

    • C.

      Rapporter / remporter

    • D.

      Amener / apporter

    Correct Answer
    D. Amener / apporter
    Explanation
    In this sentence, the verb "amener" means "to bring" and is used to indicate that the speaker will bring a friend to the picnic. The verb "apporter" means "to bring" as well, but is used to indicate that the speaker and their friend will bring drinks to the picnic. Therefore, the correct answer is "amener / apporter" as it accurately conveys the intended meaning of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Hier soir Annette ____ la télévision et son frère ____ avec ses amis.

    • A.

      Regardait / sortait

    • B.

      A regardé / a sorti

    • C.

      A regardé / est sorti

    • D.

      A regardée / est sortie

    Correct Answer
    C. A regardé / est sorti
    Explanation
    Last night, Annette watched television and her brother went out with his friends. The verb "regardait" (watched) is in the imperfect tense, which indicates an ongoing or repeated action in the past. The verb "sorti" (went out) is in the passé composé tense, which is used to express a completed action in the past. Therefore, the correct answer is "a regardé / est sorti."

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Quand Michèle et Corinne ________ dans la salle de classes, tout le monde les ________ .

    • A.

      Est entré / ont regardé

    • B.

      Sont entrées / a regardées

    • C.

      Est entrée / a regardé

    • D.

      Sont entrés / ont regardés

    Correct Answer
    B. Sont entrées / a regardées
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "sont entrées / a regardées". In this sentence, Michèle et Corinne are the subjects and they are both female (plural). Therefore, the verb "entrer" needs to agree with the subject and be conjugated in the feminine plural form, which is "sont entrées". Additionally, the verb "regarder" also needs to agree with the subject and be conjugated in the feminine plural form, which is "a regardées".

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Quand ma tante ____ jeune, elle ____ nous voir tous les étés

    • A.

      A été / est venue

    • B.

      A été / venait

    • C.

      était / venait

    • D.

      était / est venue

    Correct Answer
    C. était / venait
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "était / venait". This is because the sentence is talking about a past action (when my aunt was young) and a repeated action in the past (she used to come to see us every summer). The verb "être" (to be) is conjugated in the imperfect tense "était" to indicate the past and "venir" (to come) is conjugated in the imperfect tense "venait" to indicate a repeated action in the past.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Elle ____ la télévision quand le téléphone ____

    • A.

      Regardait / a sonné

    • B.

      A regardé / sonnait

    • C.

      Ai regardé / a sonné

    • D.

      Avait regardé / sonnait

    Correct Answer
    A. Regardait / a sonné
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "regardait / a sonné". In this sentence, "Elle" is the subject and "regardait" is the imperfect tense of the verb "regarder" (to watch). This indicates that she was watching television in the past. "Le téléphone" is the object and "a sonné" is the passé composé tense of the verb "sonner" (to ring). This indicates that the phone rang in the past. Therefore, the correct answer is "regardait / a sonné" as it correctly matches the verb tenses and makes logical sense in the context of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Le président ___ pendant vingt minutes. Son discours ____ très intéressant.

    • A.

      Parlait / a été

    • B.

      Parlait / était

    • C.

      A parlé / était

    • D.

      A parlé / a été

    Correct Answer
    C. A parlé / était
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "a parlé / était." In the sentence, "Le président a parlé pendant vingt minutes," the verb "a parlé" indicates that the president spoke for twenty minutes. In the second part of the sentence, "Son discours était très intéressant," the verb "était" is used to describe the state of the speech, indicating that it was very interesting.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Nous avions perdu nos clés,mais nous les ________ .

    • A.

      Avons retrouvées

    • B.

      Ont retrouvées

    • C.

      Avons retrouvés

    • D.

      Avons retrouvé

    Correct Answer
    A. Avons retrouvées
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "avons retrouvées". In French, the verb "retrouver" is conjugated with the auxiliary verb "avoir" in the compound past tense. Since the subject "nous" is plural and feminine, the past participle "retrouvées" must agree in gender and number. Therefore, "avons retrouvées" is the correct form.
