Test that helps learn possessive adjectives.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    (my) _______ soeur

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Ma" because "ma" is the possessive adjective in French that is used before a feminine singular noun. In this case, "soeur" is a feminine singular noun, so it is correct to use "ma" before it to indicate possession.

    (my) _________ pere

    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "Mon" because the word "pere" is a French word meaning "father". In this context, "my" is referring to the speaker's father, and "Mon" is the possessive pronoun used to indicate ownership or relationship. Therefore, "Mon pere" translates to "my father" in English.

    (my) _____________ amis

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Mes" because the word "amis" is plural, indicating that there are multiple friends. In French, possessive adjectives agree in gender and number with the noun they modify. Since "amis" is masculine and plural, the possessive adjective that corresponds to it is "mes," which means "my" in English.

    (His/Her)___________ maison

    Explanation

  • 5. 

    (His/Her)_______________frere

  • 6. 

    (His/Her)_________________ stylos

    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "Ses". It is likely that the question is asking for the possessive pronoun that matches the subject "(His/Her)" and "stylos" (meaning "pens" in French). The possessive pronoun that matches this subject is "ses" which means "his/her" in French.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    (Your) _____________ maison

    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "Votre, Ta". This is because "maison" is a feminine noun in French, and "votre" is used to address someone formally or when speaking to multiple people, while "ta" is used to address someone informally or when speaking to a single person. Therefore, depending on the context and the relationship with the person being addressed, either "Votre maison" or "Ta maison" can be used.

  • 8. 

    (Your)______________ami

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Votre, Ton" because the question is asking for the correct translations of "Your" in French. "Votre" is the formal form of "Your" used when addressing someone politely or in a professional context, while "Ton" is the informal form used when addressing someone familiarly or casually.

  • 9. 

    (Your)______________ voitures

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Vos, Tes." In French, "voitures" is the plural form of the word "voiture," which means "car." The possessive pronouns "vos" and "tes" both mean "your" in English, but they are used with different noun genders. "Vos" is used with plural nouns, while "tes" is used with singular masculine nouns. Since "voitures" is a plural noun, the correct answer is "Vos" to indicate ownership of multiple cars. "Tes" would be used if the noun were singular and masculine, such as "ta voiture" (your car).

    (Our)________________ crayon 

    Explanation

    (our)____________ mere

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Notre". This is the correct translation of the word "our" in French. It is used to indicate possession or belonging to a group of people.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    (Our)__________________ordinateurs

    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "Nos". This is because "nos" is the possessive adjective in French that means "our". It agrees in gender and number with the noun it modifies, which in this case is "ordinateurs" (computers). Therefore, "nos" is the correct form to use when referring to "our computers".

    Rate this question:

    (Their)____________voiture

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Leur". In French, "leur" is the possessive adjective used to indicate ownership by multiple people. In this case, it is used to show that the car belongs to "them" (multiple people).

It agrees in gender and number with the noun it modifies. In this case, "leur" is used to show that the voile (veil) belongs to a group of people.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    (Their)____________televisions

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "leurs" because it is the possessive adjective that agrees with the plural noun "televisions." In French, possessive adjectives must agree in number and gender with the noun they modify. Since "televisions" is plural, the correct form of the possessive adjective is "leurs."
