    • D.

      Come

    Correct Answer
    A. Como
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "como" because it is the first person singular form of the verb "comer" which means "to eat" in Spanish. The verb form "como" agrees with the subject "Yo" which also means "I" in English. Therefore, the sentence "Yo como ensalada" translates to "I eat salad" in English.

      Leen

    Correct Answer
    C. Lee
    Explanation
    In Spanish, the verb "leer" means "to read". The subject of the sentence is "el chico" which means "the boy". When conjugating the verb "leer" for the third person singular (he/she/it), we use the form "lee". Therefore, the correct answer is "lee" which translates to "reads" in English.

    Correct Answer
    D. Vives
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "vives" because the verb "vivir" is conjugated in the second person singular form. This form is used when referring to "tú" (you) in the present tense. Therefore, "Tú vives en los Estados Unidos" translates to "You live in the United States."

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "escribimos" because it matches the subject "nosotros," which is the first-person plural form. The verb "escribir" means "to write," and when conjugated in the first-person plural form, it becomes "escribimos." This form is used when the speaker includes themselves and others in the action of writing.

    Correct Answer
    C. Escribe
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "escribe". The phrase "en la pizarra" indicates that the action being performed is related to writing on the blackboard. "Escribe" is the conjugated form of the verb "escribir", which means "to write" in Spanish. Therefore, the most appropriate option is "escribe" as it matches the context of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Carlos y yo ________ (comer) mucho en el desayuno. 

    Correct Answer
    comemos, Comemos
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "comemos, Comemos." This is because the subject of the sentence is "Carlos y yo" which is a plural subject, so the verb "comer" needs to be conjugated in the plural form "comemos" to match. Additionally, "Comemos" is capitalized because it is the first word of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    ¿________ tú (ver) la tele mucho?

    Correct Answer
    ves, Ves
    Explanation
    The question is asking if the person watches a lot of television. The correct answer is "ves, Ves," which means "you watch, You watch." This response indicates that the person does indeed watch a lot of television.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Yo ________ (hacer) mucho en la clase de español.

    Correct Answer
    hago, Hago
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "hago, Hago." The verb "hacer" means "to do" or "to make" in Spanish. The sentence is saying "I do a lot in Spanish class." The verb "hago" is the correct conjugation for the pronoun "yo" (I). The capitalized "Hago" is also correct because it is the first word of the sentence and in Spanish, the first word of a sentence is always capitalized.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Elena y yo no ________ (leer) los libros.

    Correct Answer
    leemos, Leemos
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "leemos, Leemos." In Spanish, the verb "leer" means "to read." The subject of the sentence is "Elena y yo," which is the first person plural form. Therefore, the correct conjugation of "leer" in the present tense is "leemos." Additionally, since "Elena y yo" is the subject, the pronoun "nosotros" is implied, so the capitalized form "Leemos" is also correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Pedro ________ (compartir) las papas fritas.

    Correct Answer
    comparte, Comparte
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "comparte, Comparte." In Spanish, the verb "compartir" means "to share." The subject of the sentence is Pedro, which is a singular third-person pronoun. In Spanish, when referring to a singular third-person subject, we use the verb form "comparte" to match the subject. The second option, "Comparte," is the correct form to use when addressing someone informally, which is appropriate in this context. Therefore, the correct answer is "comparte, Comparte," meaning "Pedro shares."
