    Correct Answer
    C. Somos
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "somos" because the subject "nosotros" is a first-person plural pronoun, which means "we" in English. In Spanish, the verb "ser" is used to indicate identity or characteristics, and when conjugated for "nosotros," it becomes "somos." Therefore, the correct sentence would be "Nosotros somos amigos," which translates to "We are friends" in English.

    • E.

      Soy

    Correct Answer
    D. Son
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "son." This is because the verb "son" is the conjugation of the verb "ser" in the third person plural form, which is used to refer to a group of people or things. In this sentence, "Ellas" is the subject, indicating that the speaker is talking about a group of females. Therefore, the correct form of the verb to use is "son," indicating that "they are intelligent."
