Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    ¿Tienes tu maleta?

    • A.

      Sí, lo tienes

    • B.

      Sí, te tengo

    • C.

      Sí, la tienes

    • D.

      Sí, la tengo

    Correct Answer
    D. Sí, la tengo
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Sí, la tengo" because the question is asking if the person has their suitcase. In Spanish, "maleta" is a feminine noun, so the correct pronoun to use is "la" to refer to it. The verb "tener" means "to have", and in this case, it is conjugated to "tengo" to match the subject "yo" (I). Therefore, the correct response is "Sí, la tengo" meaning "Yes, I have it."

    Correct Answer
    C. Sí, voy a verlos en el aeropuerto
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Sí, voy a verlos en el aeropuerto." This means "Yes, I am going to see them at the airport." The question asks if the person is going to see their friends at the airport, and the answer confirms that they are indeed going to see them at the airport.

    • B.

    • C.

      Sí, lo tienes

    • D.

      Sí, la tengo

    Correct Answer
    B. Sí, lo tengo
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Sí, lo tengo." This is because "pasaporte" is a masculine noun, so the correct pronoun to use is "lo." Additionally, "tengo" is the correct form of the verb "tener" (to have) for the subject "yo" (I). Therefore, the correct translation of the sentence is "Yes, I have it."

    ¿Vas a facturar el equipaje?

    • A.

      Sí, voy a facturarla

    • B.

      Sí, vas a facturarlo

    • C.

      Sí, voy a facturarlo

    • D.

      Sí, vas a facturarla

    Correct Answer
    C. Sí, voy a facturarlo
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Sí, voy a facturarlo." This is because the subject of the sentence is "yo" (I), and the verb "facturar" (to check in) needs to agree with the subject. Therefore, the correct form of the verb is "facturarlo" (to check it in), as it refers to the luggage (equipaje) mentioned in the question.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Choose whether or not the following sentence needs an "a personal".  Veo _________ Luisa. Está en la puerta ocho.

    • A.

      A

    • B.

      X

    Correct Answer
    A. A
    Explanation
    The sentence "Veo a Luisa. Está en la puerta ocho." translates to "I see Luisa. She is at gate eight." In Spanish, when referring to a specific person, the preposition "a" is used before the person's name. Therefore, the correct answer is "a" because it is necessary to include "a" before the name "Luisa" to indicate that the speaker is seeing a specific person.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Choose whether or not the following sentence needs an "a personal".   Busco _________ la puerta. Carmen está alli?

    • A.

      A

    • B.

      X

    Correct Answer
    B. X
    Explanation
    The sentence "Busco _________ la puerta. Carmen está alli?" does not need "a personal" because the word "personal" is not necessary to convey the meaning of the sentence. The sentence is asking if Carmen is there, so adding "a personal" would not change the meaning or improve the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Choose whether or not the following sentence needs an "a personal".Voy a mirar ________ la pantalla. No la puedo ver.

    • A.

      A

    • B.

      X

    Correct Answer
    B. X
    Explanation
    The sentence "Voy a mirar ________ la pantalla. No la puedo ver." does not need "a personal" because the phrase "a mirar" already implies that the person is going to look at something. Adding "a personal" would be redundant in this context.

    • C.

      A Carlos

    • D.

      Un sombrero

    Correct Answer
    C. A Carlos
    Explanation
    The indirect object in the sentence is "a Carlos". In this sentence, "a Carlos" represents the person who is receiving the action of the verb "doy" (give). It indicates that the hat is being given to Carlos.

    • C.

      Victoria

    • D.

      Va a dar

    Correct Answer
    B. A ellas
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "a ellas" because it is the prepositional phrase that indicates the recipient of the action of giving. In this sentence, Victoria is giving "un DVD" (a DVD) to "ellas" (them). The phrase "a ellas" functions as the indirect object in this sentence.

    • D.

      Yo

    Correct Answer
    C. A ti
    Explanation
    In the given sentence, "a ti" is the indirect object. It is used to indicate the recipient of the action "decir" (to say). The speaker is saying everything about their trip to "you" (ti). The other options, "mi" and "todo," are not indirect objects. "Yo" is the subject of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    The Direct Object pronoun takes the place of the noun.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    True. A direct object pronoun is a type of pronoun that takes the place of a noun in a sentence. It is used to avoid repeating the noun and to make the sentence less repetitive. For example, in the sentence "She ate the cake," "the cake" is the direct object, and it can be replaced with the pronoun "it" to say "She ate it." In this case, "it" is the direct object pronoun that takes the place of "the cake."

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    The direct object is always a person.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    False. The direct object in Spanish is not always a person. The direct object is simply the noun or pronoun that receives the action of the verb directly. It can refer to a person, thing, or even an idea. In contrast, the indirect object refers to the recipient of the action.

    Example: Juan (person) golpeó la pelota (thing). (Juan hit the ball.) In this sentence, "la pelota" is the direct object because it is what Juan hit. It's a thing, not a person.

    • A.

      True

    The indirect object is the recipient of the direct object in a sentence. It answers the question "to whom" or "for whom" the action is being done. For example, in the sentence "I gave Mary a gift," Mary is the indirect object because she is the one receiving the gift. Therefore, the statement "The indirect object is who/what is receiving the direct object" is correct.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In the sentence "Kate sends a letter to Mark," the word "letter" is the direct object because it receives the action of the verb "sends." The direct object is the noun or noun phrase that directly receives the action of the verb. In this case, the letter is what Kate sends, making it the direct object.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In the sentence "Peter sells George the car," George is the recipient of the action of selling. He is not the direct object (the car) but rather the indirect object, as he is the one who benefits from the transaction. Therefore, the statement that George is the indirect object is true.

    In school, respect means talking when you are suppose to be listening and/or working on an assigned task.

    • A.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that in school, respect means talking when you are supposed to be listening and/or working on an assigned task. However, this is incorrect. Respect in school typically means showing courtesy, consideration, and politeness towards teachers, peers, and the learning environment. It involves actively listening, following instructions, and staying focused on the assigned tasks. Talking when you are supposed to be listening or working is generally considered disrespectful behavior.
