    Rate this question:

    ____ bici

  • 12. 

    ____ cittá

    Explanation
    The given answer "la" is correct because it is the feminine singular form of the definite article in Italian. In Italian, nouns are categorized as either masculine or feminine, and the definite article must agree with the gender and number of the noun it precedes. Since "cittá" is a feminine singular noun, it requires the feminine singular definite article "la" before it.

  • 16. 

    ____ università

    Explanation
    The given phrase "____ università" is incomplete and lacks context. However, based on the word "la" provided as the answer, it can be inferred that the missing word should be feminine. In Italian, "la" is the definite article used before feminine singular nouns. Therefore, the correct completion of the phrase would be "la università", which translates to "the university" in English.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    ____ spettacoli

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "gli" because it is the plural form of the article "il" or "lo" used before masculine nouns starting with a vowel or a consonant followed by a vowel. In this case, "spettacoli" is a masculine plural noun starting with a consonant followed by a vowel, so it requires the article "gli" before it.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    ____ gnocchi

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "gli" because "gnocchi" is a plural noun in Italian and "gli" is the plural form of the masculine article "il". Therefore, "gli" is the correct article to use before "gnocchi".

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    ____ specchi

  • 20.

  • 21.

    Explanation
    The question is asking for the correct form of the word "serpente" in Italian. In Italian, nouns have gender and number, and "serpente" is a singular masculine noun. The definite article "il" is used before singular masculine nouns in Italian, so the correct answer is "il".
