    The correct answer is "Su pelicula favorita es Friday Night Lights" because the subject "his" is singular, so the correct form of the verb "es" (is) should be used. Additionally, "pelicula" (movie) is a singular noun, so it should be "favorita" (favorite) to agree in gender and number.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    Mi comida __________________ es pizza.

    Correct Answer
    favorita
    Favorita
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "favorita, Favorita". In Spanish, adjectives must agree in gender and number with the noun they modify. "Comida" (food) is a feminine noun, so the adjective "favorita" must also be in the feminine form, which is spelled with a lowercase "f". However, when starting a sentence or a title, the adjective should be capitalized, hence "Favorita" is also correct.

  • 23. 

    Nuestras peliculas favoritas ______ Avatar y Finding Forrester.

    Correct Answer
    son
    son

    The correct answer is "son, son" because the sentence is in Spanish and the verb "ser" (to be) is used to indicate possession or characteristics. In this case, it is used to express that "Avatar" and "Finding Forrester" are our favorite movies. The verb "ser" needs to agree with the subject "nuestras peliculas favoritas" (our favorite movies) in number, which is plural, so the correct form of the verb is "son" (are).
