Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Je _______ (deviner) *SUPPOSING YOU ARE A GIRL

    • A.

      Je suis devenue

    • B.

      J'ai devenu

    • C.

      Je suis deveni

    • D.

      Je suis devenir

    • E.

      J'ai deveni

    Correct Answer
    A. Je suis devenue
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Je suis devenue." This is because "Je suis" is the correct conjugation of the verb "être" (to be) in the first person singular form. Since "devenir" (to become) is a verb that requires the auxiliary verb "être" in the past tense, we use "Je suis" followed by the past participle "devenue" to indicate that the speaker (a girl in this case) has become or turned into something.

    • C.

      A

    Correct Answer
    A. Est
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "est" because it is the conjugated form of the verb "être" (to be) in the third person singular. In this context, it means "is" and is used to describe a state of being or to indicate the existence of someone or something.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Elle est parti

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given phrase "Elle est parti" is grammatically incorrect. In French, when referring to a female subject, the correct form should be "Elle est partie" which means "She has left". Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Elle a descendue

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The sentence "Elle a descendue" is grammatically incorrect in French. The correct form should be "Elle a descendu." So, the statement "Elle a descendue" is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Il ____(naitre)

    • A.

      Il est née

    • B.

      Il a naitu

    • C.

      Il est né

    • D.

      Il es né

    • E.

      Il as nés

    Correct Answer
    C. Il est né
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Il est né." This is the correct form of the verb "naître" (to be born) in the third person singular masculine. The subject "Il" (he) is paired with the auxiliary verb "est" (is) and the past participle "né" (born) to form the past tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    "ALLER" and "ARRIVER" are both ETRE verbs.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because both "ALLER" and "ARRIVER" are conjugated using the verb "ETRE" in French. "ETRE" is one of the two auxiliary verbs used in French, the other being "AVOIR". It is used to form compound tenses and is conjugated differently than regular verbs. In the case of "ALLER" and "ARRIVER", they both use "ETRE" as the auxiliary verb in their compound tenses such as the passé composé. Therefore, both "ALLER" and "ARRIVER" are ETRE verbs.

      Prendu

    • D.

      Perdu

    • E.

      Perd

    Correct Answer
    B. Pris
    Explanation
    The correct past participle of "prendre" is "pris." This is the past participle form that is commonly used in French to indicate the action of taking or grabbing something.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The past participle of devoir is dire

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is false. The past participle of "devoir" is "dû" and not "dire". In French, "devoir" means "to have to" or "must" and its past participle is used to form compound tenses. Therefore, the correct past participle for "devoir" is "dû", not "dire" which means "to say" or "to tell".

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Je _____(voulvoir)

    • A.

      Vu

    • B.

      Voulu

    • C.

      Vouli

    Correct Answer
    B. Voulu
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "voulu." In French, the verb "vouloir" means "to want." When conjugating this verb in the past participle form, we use "voulu." This form is used when expressing past actions or desires.

    Rate this question:

    Tu _______ (voir)

    • A.

      Vu

    • B.

      Voi

    • C.

      Vo

    Correct Answer
    A. Vu
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "vu" because it is the past participle form of the verb "voir" (to see) in French. The sentence "Tu _______ (voir)" requires the past participle form to complete the sentence.
