      Ustedes

    • D.

      Vosotros

    Correct Answer
    B. Usted
    Explanation
    When talking to a stranger who is older than you, it is appropriate to use "usted" as a form of respect. "Usted" is the formal form of "you" in Spanish and is used to show politeness and deference towards someone. Using "usted" in this situation demonstrates proper etiquette and acknowledges the age and authority of the person you are speaking to.

    Complete with the correct form of SER:  María y yo ____ jóvenes serias.

    Correct Answer
    somos
    Explanation
    The correct form of the verb "ser" to complete the sentence is "somos." This is because "María y yo" is the subject of the sentence, and when referring to ourselves, we use the first person plural form of the verb "ser." Additionally, "jóvenes serias" is the correct form to agree with the subject, as it matches in both gender and number. Therefore, the correct sentence is "María y yo somos jóvenes serias."

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Complete with the correct form of SER:  ¿De dónde ____ la alumna nueva?

    Correct Answer
    es
    Explanation
    The correct form of SER in this sentence is "es". This is because the verb "SER" is used to indicate the origin or nationality of a person or thing. In this case, the question is asking about the origin of the new student, so we use "es" to indicate that she is from a specific place.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Which form of SER should be used in the following sentence:  ¿Quiénes ____ los amigos jóvenes?

    • A.

      Es

    • B.

      Sois

    • C.

      Son

    • D.

      Eres

    Correct Answer
    C. Son
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "son" because the sentence is asking "Who are the young friends?" In Spanish, the verb "ser" is used to express identity and characteristics, and "son" is the correct form of "ser" for the third person plural (ellos/ellas/ustedes). Therefore, "son" is the appropriate form to use in this sentence to indicate that "they" are the young friends.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which form of SER ​should be used in the following sentence:  Señora Llosa, ¿De dónde ____ usted?

    Correct Answer
    es
    Explanation
    In the given sentence, "Señora Llosa, ¿De dónde ____ usted?", the correct form of "SER" to be used is "es". This is because the verb "SER" is used to indicate permanent characteristics or qualities, such as nationality or occupation. In this case, the speaker is asking about the permanent residence or origin of Señora Llosa, which is why the third person singular form "es" is the correct choice.
