Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Luisa es ________ (bueno/buena).

    Explanation
    In Spanish, adjectives must agree in gender with the noun they modify. Since "Luisa" is a feminine name, the correct form of the adjective "bueno" (good) in this case is "buena." Therefore, the correct answer is "buena."

    Carlos y yo somos ________(inteligente/inteligentes).

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "inteligentes" because the subject "Carlos y yo" is plural, indicating that there is more than one person. In Spanish, when referring to a plural subject, the adjective "inteligentes" also needs to be in the plural form to agree with the subject. Therefore, "inteligentes" is the correct form to use in this sentence.

    La chica es ________(cómico/cómica).

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "cómica" because the word "chica" is feminine, and in Spanish, adjectives must agree in gender with the noun they modify. Since "cómica" is the feminine form of the adjective "cómico," it is the correct choice to describe a female subject.

    Explanation
    Pedro y Carmen are both referred to in the sentence, indicating that they are plural. The word "perezosos" is the plural form of "perezoso", which means lazy. Therefore, the correct answer is "perezosos" to match the plural subject.

    Mi maestra es ________(flaco/flaca).

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "flaca" because the noun "maestra" is feminine, so the adjective that describes her must also be feminine. In Spanish, adjectives must agree in gender and number with the noun they modify. Since "maestra" is singular and feminine, the adjective "flaca" (which means skinny) also needs to be singular and feminine to match.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "pequeñas" because it agrees with the noun "abejas" in gender and number. In Spanish, adjectives must match the noun they describe in both gender and number.

    Los estudiantes son ________(serio/seria/serios/serias).

    Explanation
