Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Tá mo [madra] _______ ag snámh

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "mhadra" because it is the correct form of the word "madra" in the genitive case. In Irish, the noun "madra" (meaning "dog") changes form when it is used in certain grammatical contexts, such as after the possessive pronoun "mo" (meaning "my"). In this case, "madra" changes to "mhadra" to indicate ownership or possession. Therefore, the sentence "Tá mo madra ag snámh" translates to "My dog is swimming."

  • 5. 

    Sin bhur [cat]___________

    Explanation
    The given word "Sin bhur" is in Irish language, where "Sin" means "that" and "bhur" means "your". The correct answer "gcat" is the translation of "cat" in Irish language.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Cá bhfuil ár [bus] ___________?

    Explanation
    The given correct answer "mbus" is the correct form of the possessive pronoun "our" in Irish language. In Irish, when the noun following the possessive pronoun begins with a consonant, the pronoun is lenited (changes to "m" in this case). Therefore, "mbus" is the correct form to complete the sentence "Cá bhfuil ár [bus]?" which translates to "Where is our bus?" in English.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Tá bhur [páistí] ____________ tinn.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "bpáistí" because the sentence is in Irish and "bpáistí" is the correct form of the word "children" in the genitive case. The genitive case is used after the word "tá" (meaning "is") to indicate possession or affiliation. Therefore, the sentence translates to "Your children are sick."

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Tháinig [mo aintín] _______ go Baile Átha Cliath.

    Explanation
    The sentence is in Irish and translates to "My friend came to Dublin." The phrase "mo aintín" means "my friend" in Irish. Therefore, the correct answer is "m'aintín" which is the possessive form of "mo aintín" meaning "my friend's."

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Níl bhur [gairdín] __________ an-mhór.

    Explanation
    The phrase "Níl bhur [gairdín] __________ an-mhór" suggests that the missing word is a form of the word "gairdín" (garden) that means "your." The answer "ngairdín" is the correct form of "gairdín" in the genitive case, indicating possession. Therefore, the phrase translates to "Your garden is not big."

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Bhí ár [uncail] ________ san ospidéal.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "n-uncail" because the word "uncail" is a masculine noun in Irish, and when it is preceded by the possessive pronoun "ár" (our), the initial consonant "u" is lenited (changes to "n") due to the grammatical rule of eclipsis. Therefore, the correct form is "n-uncail" to indicate "our uncle" in the sentence "Bhí ár [uncail] n-uncail san ospidéal."

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    An bhfuil [do eitleán] _________ anseo?

    Explanation
    This question is asking if your plane is here. The correct answer is "d'eitleán" which means "your plane" in Irish. The phrase "anseo" means "here" in Irish. Therefore, the correct answer completes the sentence and provides the appropriate noun to match the question.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Tá do [mac] _________cliste

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "mhac" because the phrase "Tá do [mac] _________cliste" is in Irish Gaelic, and "mhac" is the correct word to complete the sentence. In Irish, "mac" means "son" and "mhac" is the genitive form of "mac" used after the possessive pronoun "do" meaning "your". Therefore, the complete sentence translates to "Your son is clever."

  • 14. 

    Tá a (his) [uaireadóir] ________ briste
