    Correct Answer
    A. La famille Boileau a téléphoné à ses amis de Nice.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "La famille Boileau a téléphoné à ses amis de Nice." This is the correct tense because the sentence is referring to a specific past action that has already been completed. The use of the auxiliary verb "a" before the past participle "téléphoné" indicates that the family Boileau has already made the phone call to their friends in Nice.

    Rate this question:

    B. Ils ont décidé de passer leur vacances avec leurs amis.
    Explanation
    The correct past tense for the sentence "Ils décident de passer leur vacances avec leurs amis" is "Ils ont décidé de passer leur vacances avec leurs amis." This is because the subject "Ils" is plural, so the verb "décider" should also be in the plural form "ont décidé." Additionally, the correct form of the verb "passer" is "passer" and not "passé" in this context.

    • D.

      Avons voulu

    Correct Answer

      A conduit

    • D.

      A condu

    Correct Answer
    C. A conduit
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "a conduit." In the context of the sentence, "François" is the subject and "la voiture de son père" is the direct object. The verb "conduire" means "to drive" in French, and in the passé composé tense, it is conjugated as "a conduit" for the third person singular subject "François." Therefore, the correct form of the verb to complete the sentence is "a conduit."

    Rate this question:

      A permit

    • C.

      A permi

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "a permis". In French, the verb "permettre" means "to allow" or "to permit". In the context of the sentence, the subject's father allowed or permitted her to take something. The verb "permettre" is conjugated in the third person singular form of the passé composé tense, which is "a permis".

    Rate this question:

  • 31. 

    Sur la route, les amis ______________ les vitres (ouvrir, passé composé)

    • A.

      Ont ouvré

    • B.

      Ont ouvri

    • C.

      Ont ouvert

    Correct Answer
    C. Ont ouvert
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "ont ouvert." In French, the verb "ouvrir" means "to open." In the given sentence, the subject "les amis" is plural, so we use the auxiliary verb "ont" (from "avoir") in the third person plural form. To form the past participle of "ouvrir," we remove the infinitive ending "-ir" and add "-ert." Therefore, the correct past participle is "ouvert."

    Rate this question:

  • 32.

      A, ri

      A rit

    • D.

      Ont rit

    Correct Answer
    B. Ont ri
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "ont ri". In French, the verb "rire" (to laugh) is conjugated in the passé composé (compound past) tense using the auxiliary verb "avoir" (to have) followed by the past participle "ri". Since the subject "ils" (they) is plural, the correct conjugation is "ont ri", which means "they laughed".

      Sont suivi

    • D.

      Ont suivi

    Correct Answer
    D. Ont suivi
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "ont suivi". In French, the verb "suivre" (to follow) is conjugated with the auxiliary verb "avoir" (to have) in the passé composé tense. The subject "ils" (they) is plural, so the correct form of the auxiliary verb is "ont". Therefore, the correct conjugation is "ont suivi".

    • C.

      A doit

    Correct Answer
    A. A dû
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "a dû." In this sentence, the verb "devoir" is used in the passé composé tense, indicating a past action. "A dû" is the correct conjugation of "devoir" in the passé composé for the subject "François." It means "had to" in English, indicating that François had to leave the national road.

      A volu

    • D.

      A vuolu

    Correct Answer
    B. A vu
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "a vu" because the verb "voir" (to see) is conjugated in the passé composé tense with the auxiliary verb "avoir" (to have). The correct form of "avoir" in the third person singular is "a" and the past participle of "voir" is "vu". Therefore, the correct conjugation is "a vu".

      Ont comprenu

    • C.

      Ont compris

    Correct Answer
    C. Ont compris
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "ont compris." In French, the verb "comprendre" (to understand) is conjugated in the passé composé with the auxiliary verb "avoir" (to have) followed by the past participle "compris." Therefore, the correct conjugation for the subject "ils" (they) is "ont compris."

      Ont découvré

    • D.

      Ont découvru

    Correct Answer
    A. Ont découvert
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "ont découvert." In French, the verb "découvrir" (to discover) is conjugated in the passé composé tense with the auxiliary verb "avoir" (to have) and the past participle "découvert." The subject "ils" (they) requires the third person plural form of the auxiliary verb "avoir," which is "ont." Therefore, the correct conjugation is "ont découvert."

    Rate this question:

    • B.

      Sont allés

    • C.

      Sont allé

    • D.

      Sont allée

    Correct Answer
    A. Sont allées
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "sont allées." In French, the verb "aller" (to go) agrees in gender and number with the subject. Since Fabienne and her friend Martine are both female, the past participle "allées" needs to agree with them in gender and number.

    Rate this question:

  • 39. 

    Fabienne (a girl) _____________ rendre visite à sa mère. (aller, passé composé)

    • A.

      Est allé

      A allée

    • D.

      A allé

    Correct Answer
    B. Est allée
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "est allée". In French, when using the verb "aller" in the passé composé (past tense), the auxiliary verb "être" is used. Since Fabienne is a girl, the past participle "allée" agrees in gender and number with the subject, so it becomes "est allée".

    Rate this question:

      Est arrivée

    • D.

      A arrivée

    Correct Answer
    C. Est arrivée
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "est arrivée." In French, when using the passé composé tense with the verb "arriver" (to arrive), we need to use the auxiliary verb "être" (to be) as the helping verb. Since the subject "Elle" is feminine, we use the feminine form of the auxiliary verb, which is "est." The past participle of "arriver" is "arrivée," which agrees in gender with the subject "Elle." Therefore, the correct form is "est arrivée."

    Rate this question:

      A resté

    • D.

      A restée

    Correct Answer
    A. Est restée
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "est restée". In French, the verb "rester" (to stay) agrees with the subject in gender and number. Since "Elle" is a singular feminine pronoun, the past participle "restée" also needs to be in the feminine singular form. Therefore, "est restée" is the correct conjugation of the verb "rester" in the passé composé tense when referring to "Elle".

      Est montée

    • C.

      A monté

    Correct Answer
    B. Est montée
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "est montée". In French, the verb "monter" means "to go up" or "to climb". Since the subject of the sentence is "Martine", a female, the past participle of the verb needs to agree in gender and number. In this case, the past participle "montée" is used because Martine is a female. Therefore, the correct form of the verb "monter" in this sentence is "est montée".

      Est tombée

    Correct Answer
    D. Est tombée
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "est tombée." In French, the verb "tomber" (to fall) is conjugated with the auxiliary verb "être" in the passé composé tense. Since the subject of the sentence is feminine (elle), the past participle "tombée" agrees in gender and number.

      Sont allées

    Correct Answer
    A. Est allé
    Explanation
    In this sentence, "Mais tout" indicates that the subject is singular. The verb "aller" needs to agree with the subject in gender and number. Since the subject is masculine singular, the correct form of the verb is "est allé."

      Sont sorties

    • D.

      Sont sortis

    Correct Answer
    C. Sont sorties
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "sont sorties." In French, when talking about a group of female friends, the verb "sortir" needs to agree with the subject in gender and number. Since "amies" is a plural feminine noun, the past participle "sorties" also needs to be in the plural feminine form. Therefore, the correct conjugation of "sortir" in the passé composé for this sentence is "sont sorties."

      Est rentré

    • B.

      Est rentrée

      Ont rentré

    Correct Answer
    D. Sont rentrées
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "sont rentrées." This is because the subject "Elles" is feminine and plural, so the past participle "rentrées" needs to agree with it in gender and number. The auxiliary verb "être" is used in the passé composé to form the compound verb "sont rentrées."

    • C.

      Liriez ce livre

    Correct Answer
    B. Lisiez ce livre
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "lisiez ce livre." This is the correct conjugation of the verb "lire" in the subjunctive mood for the pronoun "vous."

    • A.

      écrives une lettre à ta soeur.

    • B.

      écrire une lettre à ta soeur.

    • C.

      écrites une lettre à ta soeur.

    Correct Answer
    A. écrives une lettre à ta soeur.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "écrives une lettre à ta soeur." This is the correct form of the verb "écrire" in the imperative mood for the subject "tu." In French, when giving a command or instruction to someone, the verb form changes. In this case, the verb "écrire" is conjugated as "écrives" for the subject "tu." The other options, "écrire" and "écrites," are not correct verb forms for the imperative mood with the subject "tu."

      Conduit lentement

    • B.

      Conduire lentement

    • C.

      Conduise lentement.

    Correct Answer
    C. Conduise lentement.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "conduise lentement." This is because the sentence is in the subjunctive mood, indicating a hypothetical or uncertain action. In this case, the phrase "Il vaut mieux" suggests a recommendation or preference, so the subjunctive form of the verb "conduire" is used.
