Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    L'ensemble des événements actuels/récents

    Correct Answer
    une actualité
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "une actualité" because it is the term that best describes "l'ensemble des événements actuels/récents" which refers to current or recent events. "Une actualité" is a noun that encompasses all the news and events happening at a given time.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Une enquête

    Correct Answer
    un sondage
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "un sondage" because both "une enquête" and "un sondage" refer to a survey or investigation. However, "un sondage" specifically refers to a survey conducted to gather opinions or feedback from a sample population, while "une enquête" can refer to a broader investigation or inquiry. Therefore, "un sondage" is the more appropriate term in this context.

  • 3. 

    Des journaux parlés ou télévisés, des nouvelles

    Correct Answer
    des infos
    Explanation
    The given answer "des infos" is correct because it is a shortened form of "des informations," which means "news" or "information" in French. It is commonly used to refer to news or updates that are shared through spoken or televised media, such as newspapers or TV broadcasts.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Un journal publié tous les jours

    Correct Answer
    un quotidien
    Explanation
    The given correct answer for this question is "un quotidien" which means "a daily newspaper" in English. This is because the phrase "un journal publié tous les jours" translates to "a newspaper published every day," indicating that it is referring to a daily publication. Therefore, "un quotidien" is the appropriate term to describe this type of publication.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Un magazine publié toutes les semaines

    Correct Answer
    un hebdomadaire
    Explanation
    The given correct answer for this question is "un hebdomadaire" because it accurately describes a magazine that is published every week. "Hebdomadaire" is the French word for "weekly," so it correctly matches the frequency of the publication mentioned in the question.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Produire un effet, exercer une influence, transformer

    Correct Answer
    agir
    Explanation
    The given answer "agir" is the correct answer because it means "to act" in English. The phrase "produire un effet, exercer une influence, transformer" suggests that the action of "agir" is related to producing an effect, exerting an influence, or transforming something. Therefore, "agir" is the appropriate verb choice to describe the action being referred to in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Rester informé

    Correct Answer
    se tenir informé
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "se tenir informé." This phrase is a reflexive verb in French, meaning "to stay informed" or "to keep oneself informed." It implies the action of actively seeking and obtaining information to stay updated on a particular topic or situation. The phrase "rester informé" also means "to stay informed," but "se tenir informé" is a more idiomatic and commonly used expression in French.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    être informé

    Correct Answer
    être au courant
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "être au courant" because it means "to be informed" in English. This phrase is used to describe someone who is aware or knowledgeable about a particular situation or piece of information. It implies that the person has been given or has sought out the information and is now up to date on the subject. "Être informé" can also be translated as "to be informed," but "être au courant" is a more common and idiomatic expression in French.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    En France, 25% des lycéens pensent qu'il est important de se tenir informé de l'actualité.

    • A.

      Vrai

    • B.

      Faux

    Correct Answer
    B. Faux
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "faux" because the statement says that 25% of high school students in France think it is important to stay informed about current events. However, the given information does not provide any evidence or data to support this claim. Therefore, we cannot determine the accuracy of this statement based on the information given.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Les français restent informés par la télévision, pas par la presse écrite.

    • A.

      Vrai

    • B.

      Faux

    Correct Answer
    B. Faux
    Explanation
    The statement "Les français restent informés par la télévision, pas par la presse écrite" means "The French stay informed through television, not through the written press." The correct answer, "faux," means false. This suggests that the statement is not true and that the French do not solely rely on television for their information, but also utilize the written press.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Imperfect, parler, je

    Correct Answer
    parlais
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "parlais" because it is the imperfect form of the verb "parler" in the first person singular. In French, the imperfect tense is used to describe ongoing or repeated actions in the past. Therefore, "parlais" indicates that the speaker was talking in the past.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Imperfect, parler, tu

    Correct Answer
    parlais
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "parlais." In French, the verb "parler" means "to speak" and "parlais" is the imperfect form of this verb used to indicate past actions or habitual actions in the past. Therefore, "parlais" is the correct form of the verb to match the subject "tu," which means "you" in English.

    Rate this question:

  • 13.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "parlait." The verb "parlait" is the imperfect form of the verb "parler" in French. It is used to indicate an ongoing or habitual action in the past. In this context, "elle parlait" means "she was speaking" or "she used to speak."

    Rate this question:

  • 14.

    Imperfect,finir, je

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "finissais." In French, "finir" means "to finish" and is a regular -ir verb. When conjugating it in the imperfect tense for the subject "je" (I), you remove the -ir ending and add -issais. Therefore, "finissais" is the correct conjugation for "je finir" in the imperfect tense, meaning "I was finishing."

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Imperfect, finir, tu

    Correct Answer
    finissais
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "finissais." In French, the verb "finir" means "to finish." When conjugating this verb in the imperfect tense for the subject "tu" (you), we add the ending "-issais." Therefore, "finissais" is the correct conjugation for "tu finir" in the imperfect tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    Imperfect, finir, il

    Correct Answer
    finissait
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "finissait." In French, "finir" means "to finish" and "il" is the pronoun for "he." The verb "finissait" is the imperfect form of "finir" used to describe an ongoing or habitual action in the past. Therefore, "finissait" translates to "he was finishing" or "he used to finish."

    Rate this question:

    Correct Answer
    finissions
    Explanation

    Imperfect, finir, vous

    Correct Answer
    finissiez

The verb "finir" is conjugated as "finissiez" in the second-person plural form of the imperfect tense. Therefore, "finissiez" is the correct conjugation of "finir" for the subject pronoun "vous" in the imperfect tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    Imperfect, finir, ils

    Correct Answer
    finissaient
    Explanation

    Rate this question:

  • 24.

The given word "vendais" is the imperfect form of the verb, which is used to describe past actions or habitual actions in the past.

    Correct Answer
    vendaient
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "vendaient" because it is the imperfect form of the verb "vendre" in the third person plural. The verb "vendre" means "to sell" in English. In this context, "ils vendaient" would translate to "they were selling" or "they used to sell". The imperfect tense is used to describe ongoing or repeated actions in the past.

    Rate this question:

  • 29. 

    Imperfect, être, je

    Correct Answer
    étais
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "étais." In French, the verb "être" (to be) is conjugated differently depending on the subject pronoun. In this case, the subject pronoun is "je" (I), and when conjugating "être" in the past tense, the correct form is "étais."

    Rate this question:

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "étais" because it is the correct conjugation of the verb "être" (to be) in the imperfect tense for the subject pronoun "tu" (you). In French, the imperfect tense is used to describe ongoing or repeated actions in the past.

    Rate this question:

  • 31. 

    Imperfect, être, elle

    Correct Answer
    était
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "était" because it is the imperfect form of the verb "être" (to be) in the third person singular. In this sentence, the subject is "elle" (she), so we use the corresponding form of the verb "être" which is "était" to indicate past continuous action or state.

    Rate this question:

  • 32. 

    Imperfect, être, nous

    Correct Answer
    étions
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "étions." This is the correct conjugation of the verb "être" (to be) in the imperfect tense for the subject pronoun "nous" (we). In this case, it indicates that "we" were in a state of being or existence in the past.

    Rate this question:

  • 33. 

    Imperfect, être, vous

    Correct Answer
    étiez
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "étiez." In French, "étiez" is the second person plural form of the verb "être," which means "to be." It is used when addressing a group of people or when referring to "vous" (you) in a formal or polite way. The word "imperfect" in the question suggests that we are looking for a verb form in the past tense, and "étiez" fits this criteria.

    Rate this question:

  • 34. 

    Imperfect, être, ils

    Correct Answer
    étaient
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "étaient." In French, the verb "être" means "to be" and is used to indicate a state or condition. In this case, the subject "ils" (they) is being referred to, so the correct form of the verb is the third person plural, which is "étaient." This form matches the subject pronoun and agrees with the past tense of the verb "être."

    Rate this question:

  • 35. 

    Commencer, imperfect, je

    Correct Answer
    commençais
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "commençais" because it is the correct conjugation of the verb "commencer" in the imperfect tense for the subject pronoun "je" (I). In French, the imperfect tense is used to describe ongoing or repeated actions in the past. Therefore, "commençais" is the appropriate form to use in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 36. 

    Imperfect, commencer, nous

    Correct Answer
    commencions
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "commencions." In French, "commencer" means "to begin" and "nous" means "we." When conjugating the verb "commencer" in the present tense for "nous," we add the ending "-ons" to the verb stem. Therefore, "commencions" is the correct conjugation for "we begin" or "we are beginning."

    Rate this question:

  • 37. 

    Imperfect, manger, je

    Correct Answer
    mangeais
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "mangeais". This is the imperfect form of the verb "manger" in French, which means "to eat". The verb form "mangeais" is used when referring to the past and indicates that the subject was eating at that time.

    Rate this question:

  • 38. 

    Masculine, plural, beau

    Correct Answer
    beaux
    Explanation
    The word "beaux" is the correct answer because it is the masculine plural form of the adjective "beau" in French. The adjective "beau" means "beautiful" or "handsome" in English. In French, adjectives must agree in gender and number with the noun they modify. Since "beau" is masculine and plural, the correct form is "beaux" when describing multiple beautiful or handsome things.

    Rate this question:

  • 39. 

    Masculine, singular, beau, before a vowelbe

    Correct Answer
    bel
    Explanation
    In French, the adjective "beau" means "beautiful" or "handsome." When it comes before a masculine, singular noun starting with a vowel, the final consonant of "beau" is dropped and replaced with an apostrophe, resulting in "bel." This is done to improve pronunciation and avoid the awkward combination of vowel sounds. Therefore, the correct form of the adjective in this case is "bel."
