      Ustedes los tomamos

    Correct Answer
    A. Nosotros los tomamos
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Nosotros los tomamos." In Spanish, the verb "tomar" means "to take." The subject pronoun "nosotros" means "we." The pronoun "los" is used to refer to masculine plural objects. Therefore, the sentence "Nosotros los tomamos" translates to "We take them."

    Correct Answer
    B. When talking about a person
    Explanation
    The personal "a" rule applies when talking about a person. In Spanish, the preposition "a" is used before a direct object that refers to a specific person or persons. This is done to show respect or to indicate that the person is the direct recipient of the action. For example, "Veo a Juan" (I see Juan) or "Conozco a María" (I know María). However, the personal "a" is not used when talking about animals or objects, only when referring to people.
