    • D.

      Au

    Correct Answer
    C. Nothing
    Explanation
    The given sentence is incomplete and does not make grammatical sense. The word "J'aime" means "I love" in French, but it is not clear what is being loved in this sentence. The word "nothing" does not fit logically in the sentence and does not provide any meaningful explanation. Therefore, it is not possible to generate a valid explanation for the given answer.

    Je vais _______Brésil

    Correct Answer
    au
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "au" because it is the contraction of the preposition "à" (to, in) and the masculine singular article "le" (the). In this context, it indicates the destination or direction of the action "Je vais" (I am going). Therefore, "Je vais au Brésil" means "I am going to Brazil."

  • 7. 

    Je viens _________Pérou

    Correct Answer
    du
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "du". In French, when indicating the origin or location of someone, the preposition "de" is used. However, when the noun following it starts with a vowel or a silent "h", the preposition contracts to "du". In this case, since "Pérou" starts with a vowel, we use "du" instead of "de".
