A Quiz On French Direct Object Pronouns - Quiz

Welcome to this French quiz on direct object pronouns. You will face several questions in English, and you have to answer accordingly in French. This is a short test to examine your French grammatical knowledge. Are you ready?


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Translate into the direct object pronoun: He loves you.

    • A.

      Il ta adore

    • B.

      Il adore te

    • C.

      Il t'adore

    • D.

      Il adore tu

    Correct Answer
    C. Il t'adore
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Il t'adore." In French, the direct object pronoun "te" is used to represent the second person singular "you." When followed by a verb starting with a vowel or a silent "h," the pronoun "te" is contracted to "t'." Therefore, "Il t'adore" translates to "He loves you."

  • 2. 

    Fill in the blanks, adding the direct object pronoun. You can't see us. Tu _______ peux ______ _______ voir (Don't use commas)

    Correct Answer
    Tu ne peux pas nous voir , ne pas nous
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Tu ne peux pas nous voir" which means "You can't see us" in English. The direct object pronoun "us" is added as "nous" in French. The negative form "ne...pas" is used to indicate the negation of the action.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which of these replace the direct object?

    • A.

      Me

    • B.

      Moi

    • C.

      Toi

    • D.

      Leur

    • E.

      Les

    • F.

      Te

    • G.

      Le

    • H.

      La

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Me
    E. Les
    F. Te
    G. Le
    H. La
    Explanation
    The words "me, les, te, le, la" can all replace the direct object in a sentence. "Me" is used when the direct object is the first person singular (I, me), "les" is used when the direct object is the third person plural (them), "te" is used when the direct object is the second person singular (you), and "le" and "la" are used when the direct object is the third person singular (him, her, it).

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Me, Le, and Te can become M', T', L' (e.g m'aime)

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement is true because in French, when the words "me," "le," and "te" are followed by a vowel or silent "h," they contract and become "m'," "t'," and "l'." This contraction is used to improve the flow of speech and avoid awkward pronunciation. For example, "me aime" becomes "m'aime," "le enfant" becomes "l'enfant," and "te aimer" becomes "t'aimer." Therefore, the statement is correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Arrange this sentence into the direct object pronoun: Elle donne les cadeaux.

    • A.

      Elle donne les cadeux

    • B.

      Elle donne les

    • C.

      Elle les donne

    • D.

      Elle leur donne

    Correct Answer
    C. Elle les donne
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Elle les donne." In French, when the direct object is a noun, it can be replaced with a direct object pronoun. In this sentence, "les cadeaux" is the direct object, and it is replaced with the pronoun "les." The verb "donne" agrees with the subject "elle." Therefore, the correct arrangement is "Elle les donne."

    Rate this question:

  • 6.

    • A.

      Person

    • B.

      Noun

    • D.

      Verb

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Person
    C. Noun
    Explanation
    The indirect object pronoun refers to both a person and a noun. It is used to indicate the recipient of the action in a sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Indirect object pronouns are usually placed __________ the verb. (Infront of, Behind, After, Before, In the middle of)

    Correct Answer(s)
    Infront of, Before , before , infront of
    Explanation
    Indirect object pronouns are usually placed before the verb in English. In sentences with auxiliary verbs, they are placed before the main verb but after the auxiliary verb. In languages like Spanish or French, they also typically precede the conjugated verb, except in affirmative commands where they follow and are attached to the verb.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Translate this using the indirect object pronoun: I'm giving the bread to you (pl)

    • A.

      Je donne vous le pain

    • B.

      Je vous donne le pain

    • C.

      Je donne le pain a vous

    • D.

      Le pain est donne a vous

    Correct Answer
    B. Je vous donne le pain
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Je vous donne le pain." This sentence translates to "I'm giving the bread to you (pl)." In French, the indirect object pronoun "vous" is used to indicate the plural "you" as the recipient of the action. The verb "donne" means "give," and "le pain" means "the bread." Therefore, the sentence correctly expresses the action of giving the bread to the plural "you."

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Il leur achete des Livres. This is an example of the direct object pronoun.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because "Il leur achete des Livres" is an example of the indirect object pronoun. In this sentence, "leur" is the indirect object pronoun, which means "to them" in English. The direct object would be "des Livres" (some books), which is what is being bought.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Translate this sentence using the direct and indirect object pronouns. She wrote to me because she missed me. Then she rang me and now I am talking to her on the phone.

    Correct Answer
    Elle m'ecrit parceque elle m'a manquee puis elle m'a telephone et maintenant, je lui parle dans le telephone.
    Explanation
    The correct answer accurately translates the sentence into French using the appropriate direct and indirect object pronouns. It correctly uses "m'ecrit" to represent "wrote to me," "m'a manquee" to represent "missed me," "m'a telephone" to represent "rang me," and "je lui parle" to represent "I am talking to her." The answer also maintains the correct word order and includes the necessary prepositions.
