    • D.

      Sie trägt eine Bluse.

    Correct Answer
    D. Sie trägt eine Bluse.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Sie trägt eine Bluse" because the sentence translates to "She wears a blouse." The verb "tragen" has a vowel change when used with "du," "er," and "sie," and in this case, the correct form is "trägt." Additionally, the noun "Bluse" matches the subject "sie," indicating that the sentence is talking about a woman wearing a blouse.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Ich habe einen Pulli." This sentence translates to "I have a jumper" in English. The word "ich" means "I," "habe" means "have," and "einen Pulli" means "a jumper." The other options provided do not correctly translate to the given sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Select the sentence that means:The man is wearing a jumper.

    • A.

      Der Mann trägt ein Hemd.

    • B.

      Die Frau trägt einen Pulli.

    • C.

      Der Mann trägt einen Pulli.

    • D.

      Die Frau trägt eine Bluse.

    Correct Answer
    C. Der Mann trägt einen Pulli.
    Explanation
    Notice that in each of these sentences, using the third person singular, the verb "tragen" requires an umlaut to be added to its stem. The verb "tragen" is a stem-changer, just like "lesen", "fahren" and "essen". So this is how the full conjugation of the verb looks:

    ich trage
    du trägst
    er/sie trägt
    wir tragen
    ihr tragt
    sie tragen

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Fill in the correct verb in the sentence below, so that the sentence means:I am wearing a jumper.Remember that with "ich", the conjugation of the verb is VERB STEM + -eIch _________ einen Pulli.

    Correct Answer
    trage
    Explanation
    The correct verb to fill in the blank is "trage." This is because when conjugating verbs with the pronoun "ich" (meaning "I" in English), the verb stem remains the same and the ending "-e" is added. In this case, the verb stem is "trag" and the ending "-e" is added to form "trage." Therefore, the sentence "Ich trage einen Pulli" translates to "I am wearing a jumper."

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Fill in the missing word, so that the German sentence below means:The woman is wearing a blouse.Die Frau trägt eine ___________.

    Correct Answer
    Bluse
    Explanation
    The German sentence "Die Frau trägt eine Bluse" translates to "The woman is wearing a blouse." Therefore, the missing word in the sentence is "Bluse."

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Write the German sentence for: The man is wearing a jumper.Hints: The "jumper" is masculine, so you will need the accusative: "einen" for "a".If you cannot type an umlaut, you can type the letter that would take an umlaut normally and add an umlaut directly after it: e.g. "trägt" would be typed "traegt". This is a widely accepted alternative.

    Correct Answer
    Der Mann trägt einen Pulli., Der Mann trägt einen Pulli, Der Mann traegt einen Pulli., Der Mann traegt einen Pulli, Der Mann trägt einen Pullover., Der Mann trägt einen Pullover, Der Mann traegt einen Pullover., Der Mann traegt einen Pullover
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Der Mann trägt einen Pulli." This sentence correctly translates to "The man is wearing a jumper" in German. The word "Pulli" is the German word for "jumper" and is in the accusative case, which is why "einen" is used before it. The sentence is also grammatically correct with the verb "trägt" (wearing) matching the subject "Mann" (man).

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Type the words meaning: the skirtdas Kleid     das Hemd     der Rock

    Correct Answer
    der Rock
    Explanation
    The word "der Rock" is a German noun that means "skirt" in English. It is used to refer to a piece of clothing that is typically worn by women and covers the lower part of the body. In this context, "der Rock" is the correct answer because it matches the given words "das Kleid" (dress) and "das Hemd" (shirt) as items of clothing.
