    We talked

    Explanation

    Rate this question:

    You spoke

    Explanation
    The given correct answer "tú hablaste" is the conjugation of the verb "hablar" in the past tense for the pronoun "tú" which means "you" in Spanish. The verb "hablar" means "to speak" in English. Therefore, the correct translation of the phrase "you spoke" in Spanish is "tú hablaste".

    I bought a red table

    Explanation
    The given answer, "yo compré una mesa roja", is the correct translation of the sentence "I bought a red table" from English to Spanish.

  • 7. 

    They (masculine) bought

    Explanation
    The given correct answer "ellos compraron" is the Spanish translation of the English phrase "they bought." "Ellos" is the Spanish pronoun for "they" and "compraron" is the past tense form of the verb "comprar," meaning "to buy." Therefore, "ellos compraron" accurately conveys the idea that a group of males bought something.

    Explanation

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    I called my mother

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "yo llamé a mi madre, yo llamé a mi mamá" because both phrases mean "I called my mother" in Spanish. The use of "yo llamé" indicates that the speaker performed the action of calling, and "a mi madre" and "a mi mamá" both mean "my mother" in different ways.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    The cats watched

  • 14. 

    We watched the game

    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "nosotros miramos el partido, nosotros miramos el juego". This means "we watched the game, we watched the match" in English. The word "partido" can be translated as both "game" and "match" depending on the context. Similarly, "juego" can also be translated as "game". Therefore, both translations are correct in this case.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    The person watched

    Explanation
    The given phrase "la persona miró" is in Spanish and it translates to "the person watched" in English. This suggests that the action being described is someone observing or looking at something.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    You watched

  • 17. 

    You called

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "tú llamaste" because it is the correct translation of "you called" in Spanish. The verb "llamaste" is the second person singular past tense form of the verb "llamar" which means "to call". Therefore, "tú llamaste" accurately translates the given phrase.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Y'all called

    Explanation
    The given correct answer translates the phrase "y'all called" into Spanish as "ustedes llamaron." This translation accurately reflects the informal plural form of "you" in Spanish, which is "ustedes." The verb "llamaron" is the past tense form of the verb "llamar," meaning "to call." Therefore, the answer correctly conveys the meaning of the original phrase in Spanish.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    We called

    Explanation
    The given correct answer "nosotros llamamos" is the Spanish translation for "we called." It indicates that the subject "we" performed the action of calling. This answer is grammatically correct and accurately translates the phrase into Spanish.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    Mi friend called

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "mi amigo llamó, mi amiga llamó" because the question provides two possible translations for "my friend called" in Spanish, one for a male friend ("mi amigo llamó") and one for a female friend ("mi amiga llamó"). Therefore, both translations are correct depending on the gender of the friend being referred to.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    I thought

  • 22. 

    My parents thought

  • 23.
