    The passage does not mention anything about Louis leaving Nico in the church. It only states that Nico asks Louis to sit for five minutes and describes the church as a big, beautiful cathedral located in the city of Montréal.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Dans la cathédrale, il y a beaucoup de statues. Louis aime beaucoup les statues. Il veut toucher les statues avec sa langue et ses coudes. Mais il ne touche pas les statues avec sa langue. Il ne touche pas les statues avec ses coudes. Il touche les statues avec sa trompe. La trompe d'un éléphant est très bon pour toucher les statues !  How does Louis touch the statues?

    • B.

      With his elbows.

      With his feet.

    Correct Answer
    C. With his trunk.
    Explanation
    The passage states that Louis wants to touch the statues with his tongue and elbows, but he doesn't touch them with either. Instead, he touches the statues with his trunk. The passage mentions that the trunk of an elephant is very good for touching statues, implying that Louis is an elephant and uses his trunk to touch the statues. Therefore, the correct answer is "With his trunk."

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    C'est bizarre, non ? Un garçon qui voyage avec un éléphant n'est pas normal. Mais Louis n'est pas un éléphant normal. Louis est un éléphant exceptionnel. C'est évident !  What is obvious? 

    • A.

      Louis is a normal elephant.

    • B.

      Louis is a unique elephant.

    • C.

      Notre Dame is a unique church.

    • D.

      Neither Louis nor Nico are unique.

    Correct Answer
    B. Louis is a unique elephant.
    Explanation
    The passage states that Louis is not a normal elephant, but an exceptional one. This implies that Louis is unique, as the word "exceptional" suggests that he stands out from others of his kind. Therefore, it is obvious that Louis is a unique elephant.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Louis dit, « Je _________ un éléphant exceptionnel. »  Write in the correct form of être.

    Correct Answer
    suis
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "suis." In this sentence, Louis is expressing that he is an exceptional elephant. The verb "être" (to be) needs to be conjugated in the first-person singular form to match the subject "Je" (I). Therefore, the correct form of "être" is "suis."

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Nous ___________ jeudi.  ​Write in the correct form of être.

    Correct Answer
    sommes
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "sommes" because it is the correct conjugation of the verb "être" in the present tense for the subject "nous" (we).

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Je _________ presque morte !  Write in the correct form of être.

    Correct Answer
    suis
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "suis" because it is the correct form of the verb "être" (to be) in the first person singular present tense. In this sentence, the speaker is expressing that they are almost dead, so they would use the first person singular form of the verb "être" which is "suis."

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Louis _________ l'éléphant de Nico.  Write in the correct form of être.

    Correct Answer
    est
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "est" because it is the correct form of the verb "être" (to be) in the third person singular form. In this sentence, "Louis est l'éléphant de Nico" translates to "Louis is Nico's elephant" in English.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Louis et Nico  _________  à Québec.  Write in the correct form of aller.

    Correct Answer
    vont
    Explanation
    The correct form of the verb "aller" in the third person plural is "vont." This is the appropriate form to use when referring to Louis et Nico, who are the subject of the sentence. "Vont" means "go" in English, and it agrees with the subject in both number (plural) and person (third person).

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Nico  _________  à Québec avec Louis.  Write in the correct form of aller.

    Correct Answer
    va
    Explanation
    The correct form of the verb "aller" in the third person singular is "va". In this sentence, "Nico" is the subject and the verb "aller" is used to indicate movement or going somewhere. Therefore, the correct answer is "va", which means "goes" in English.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Nico et moi  _________  visiter la cathédrale de Notre Dame de Montréal.  Write in the correct form of aller.

    Correct Answer
    allons
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "allons". In this sentence, "Nico et moi" is the subject, and the verb "aller" (to go) needs to be conjugated to agree with the subject. The subject is the first person plural (we), so the correct form of "aller" is "allons".

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Moi, je  _________  visiter la cathédrale de Notre Dame de Montréal aussi.  Write in the correct form of aller.

    Correct Answer
    vais
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "vais". In this sentence, the subject "je" is expressing the action of going to visit the cathedral. The verb "aller" means "to go" and is conjugated in the first person singular form "vais" to match the subject "je". Therefore, "vais" is the correct form of "aller" to complete the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    Et toi, est-ce que tu  _________  visiter la cathédrale de Notre Dame de Montréal un jour ?  Write in the correct form of aller.

    Correct Answer
    vas
    Explanation
    The correct form of "aller" for the subject "tu" is "vas". In this sentence, the speaker is asking the person if they are going to visit the Notre Dame Cathedral in Montreal. "Vas" is the second person singular form of the verb "aller" in the present tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    Peut-être (perhaps) on  _________  visiter la cathédrale de Notre Dame de Montréal ensemble.  Write in the correct form of aller.

    Correct Answer
    va
    Explanation
    The correct form of "aller" in this sentence is "va". This is because "on" is a pronoun that is used to refer to a group of people or to mean "we" in a general sense. In this case, it is being used to suggest a possibility or a plan. The verb "aller" means "to go", and when conjugated for the pronoun "on", it becomes "va". Therefore, the sentence translates to "Perhaps we will go visit the Notre Dame de Montréal Cathedral together."
