    The given sentence is already correct. It is written in French and translates to "We are shy" in English.

    Write this sentence correctly, adding capitalization, punctuation, the correct form of être and any changes needed to the adjective:Léa et Nadine/être/gentil. 

    Correct Answer
    Léa et Nadine sont gentilles.
    Explanation
    In the given sentence, the subject "Léa et Nadine" is plural, so the correct form of the verb "être" is "sont." The adjective "gentil" needs to agree with the subject in gender and number, so it should be changed to "gentilles" to match the plural feminine subject. Therefore, the correct sentence is "Léa et Nadine sont gentilles."

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    In French, adjectives always agree in gender and number with the nouns they modify.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In French, adjectives must agree in both gender (masculine or feminine) and number (singular or plural) with the nouns they describe. This means that if you have a feminine singular noun, the adjective must also be in the feminine singular form, and the same applies to masculine and plural forms. For example, if you want to describe a "big cat" (un gros chat), "big" (gros) agrees with the masculine singular noun "chat." If you want to describe "big cats" (des gros chats), the adjective takes the plural form to agree with the plural noun. Adjective agreement is a fundamental aspect of French grammar.

    This practice quiz is better preparation than studying from the book

    • A.

      Ouais!

    • B.

      Non!

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Ouais!
    B. Non!
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "Ouais!, Non!" This suggests that the practice quiz is not better preparation than studying from the book. The exclamation marks indicate a strong disagreement, with "Ouais!" meaning "Yeah!" or "Yes!" in French, and "Non!" meaning "No!" in French. The use of both positive and negative responses emphasizes the disagreement and implies that the practice quiz is not as effective as studying from the book.
