  • 2. 

    La tour eiffel a une hauteur de 324 mètres. La statue de la liberté a une hauteur de 93 mètres. Comparez les deux en utilisant l'adjectif "grand"...

    Correct Answer
    La tour eiffel est plus grande que la statue de la liberté.
    La statue de la liberté est moins grande que la tour eiffel.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "La tour eiffel est plus grande que la statue de la liberté" because it states that the Eiffel Tower is taller than the Statue of Liberty. The adjective "plus grande" means "taller" or "bigger" in this context, indicating that the Eiffel Tower has a greater height compared to the Statue of Liberty. The second statement "La statue de la liberté est moins grande que la tour eiffel" is incorrect because it suggests that the Statue of Liberty is taller than the Eiffel Tower, which is not true according to the given information.

    Correct Answer
    La tour eiffel est moins vieille que la statue de la liberté.
    La statue de la liberté est plus vieille que la tour eiffel.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "La tour eiffel est moins vieille que la statue de la liberté." which means "The Eiffel Tower is less old than the Statue of Liberty." This is because the Eiffel Tower was built in 1889, while the Statue of Liberty was built in 1886. Therefore, the Eiffel Tower is younger than the Statue of Liberty.

    • E.

      Aussi que

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "autant de". This is because the sentence is expressing that "we" (Nous) have eaten the same number of crèpes as "I" (J'ai) and "you" (Tu). "Autant de" translates to "the same amount of" or "as many as" in English, making it the appropriate choice in this context.

    Correct Answer
    C. Le penseur est moins âgé que la baigneuse.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Le penseur est moins âgé que la baigneuse." This is because the sentence states that "Le penseur" (The Thinker) was created in 1902, while "la baigneuse" (the bather) was created in 1757. Therefore, The Thinker is younger than the bather.

    • A.

      Le plus délicieux

    • B.

      La plus délicieux

    • C.

      La plus délicieuse

    • D.

      La plus délicieuse que

    Correct Answer
    C. La plus délicieuse
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "la plus délicieuse". In French, adjectives agree in gender and number with the noun they modify. Since "nourriture" is a feminine noun, the adjective "délicieuse" also needs to be in the feminine form. The other options ("le plus délicieux", "la plus délicieux", "la plus délicieuse que") are incorrect because they either use the masculine form of the adjective or do not agree in gender with the noun.

    Correct Answer
    D. Elle est la plus jeune.
    Explanation
