French Imperative Verbs Quiz - Quiz

An imperative verb in most cases, when read out loud, feels like a command as they do not leave room for discussion or questions. These types of sentences often appear to be missing subjects and use a verb to begin the sentence. In fact, the subject is the person listening, or the audience. Test your knowledge of French imperative verbs by using this test.

    The correct answer is "Descends, Mont." In this sentence, the father is instructing his daughter to "descend" from the bus and "mont" (which should be "monter") into the car. The verb "descends" is the correct form for the second person singular (you) imperative form of the verb "descendre." The verb "mont" should be the infinitive form "monter," which means "to go up" or "to climb."
