      Tes

    Correct Answer
    C. Tes
    Explanation
    In French, possessive adjectives agree in gender and number with the noun they modify. In this case, "crayons" is a masculine plural noun, so the correct possessive adjective is "tes" which agrees with both the gender and number of the noun. "Ton" is used for masculine singular nouns, and "ta" is used for feminine singular nouns.

    A. Leur
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "leur". In French, "leur" is a possessive adjective that means "their" in English. It is used to show that something belongs to multiple people, in this case, Julie and Antonio. The word "glaçe" is a feminine noun, and "leur" agrees with it in gender and number. Therefore, the correct phrase is "leur glace", which translates to "their ice cream" in English.
