Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Bring your camera.

    • A. 

      Traga sua câmera.

    • B. 

      Traga sua câmara.

    • C. 

      Brilhe na sua câmera.

    Correct Answer
    A. Traga sua câmera.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Traga sua câmera" because it is the correct translation of "Bring your camera" in Portuguese. "Traga" is the imperative form of the verb "trazer" which means "to bring" and "sua câmera" means "your camera".

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Buy that exquisite fabric.

    • A. 

      Compre aquela fábrica esquisita.

    • B. 

      Compre aquele tecido esquisito.

    • C. 

      Compre aquele tecido refinado.

    Correct Answer
    C. Compre aquele tecido refinado.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Compre aquele tecido refinado." This is because the word "exquisite" in the original sentence suggests that the fabric is of high quality and refined. The word "refinado" in the correct answer accurately translates to "refined," which conveys the same meaning as "exquisite." The other options ("Compre aquela fábrica esquisita" and "Compre aquele tecido esquisito") use the word "esquisito," which means "weird" or "strange," and does not accurately convey the intended meaning of the sentence.

      Corra para ver a novela.

    Correct Answer
    B. Escolha o romance.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Escolha o romance" because it translates to "Choose the novel" in English. The other options either translate to "Choose the soap opera" or "Hurry to watch the soap opera," which are not the correct translations of the given phrase.

    • A. 

      Limpe a lâmpada.

    • C. 

      Limpe o chão.

    Correct Answer
    B. Limpe a luminária.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Limpe a luminária" because the sentence "Clean the lamp" is translated as "Limpe a luminária" in Portuguese. The other options do not accurately translate the phrase "Clean the lamp."

    Rate this question:

    • A.

    • C. 

      Dance com o prefeito.

    Correct Answer
    C. Dance com o prefeito.

    The correct answer is "Dance com o prefeito" because the word "prefeito" in Portuguese translates to "mayor" in English. Therefore, the phrase "Dance com o prefeito" means "Dance with the mayor."

      Dê-me a batuta.

    Correct Answer
    C. Dê-me a batuta.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Dê-me a batuta" because the word "batuta" means "baton" in Portuguese. The other options ("batata" means "potato", "batom" means "lipstick") do not make sense in the given context.

    • C. 

      Tenha êxito.

    Correct Answer
    A. Vá para a saída.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Vá para a saída" because it directly translates to "Go to the exit" in English. The other options do not accurately convey the same meaning.

      Aprenda com a leitura.

    • B. 

      Aprenda com a palestra.

    • C. 

      Aprenda a dar palestra.

    Correct Answer
    B. Aprenda com a palestra.
    Explanation

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Let the carton on the table.

    • A. 

      Deixe a cartolina na mesa.

    • B. 

      Deixe o cartão na mesa.

    • C. 

      Deixe a caixa de papelão na mesa.

    Correct Answer
    C. Deixe a caixa de papelão na mesa.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Deixe a caixa de papelão na mesa." This is because the phrase "carton on the table" is translated as "caixa de papelão na mesa" in Portuguese. The word "caixa de papelão" specifically refers to a cardboard box, which matches the meaning of "carton." Therefore, this is the most accurate translation given the context provided.

    Rate this question:

  • 10.

    • A. 

      Faça um lanche.

    • B. 

      Faça a janta.

    • C. 

      Faça o almoço.

    Correct Answer
    C. Faça o almoço.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Faça o almoço" because it translates to "Make lunch" in English. The other options translate to "Make a snack," "Make dinner," and "Make the lunch" respectively, which do not accurately convey the meaning of the original phrase.

    • A.

      Conheça o defendido.

    Correct Answer
    B. Conheça o acusado.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Conheça o acusado" because it translates to "Meet the defendant" in English. The word "acusado" means "defendant" in Portuguese, which matches the context of the sentence. The other options, "defensor" and "defendido," mean "defender" and "defended" respectively, which do not accurately describe the person being introduced in the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Send your résumé.

    • A. 

      Envie seu resumo.

    • B. 

      Envie sua carta.

    • C. 

      Envie seu currículo.

    Correct Answer
    C. Envie seu currículo.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Envie seu currículo" because the phrase "Send your résumé" is translated as "Envie seu currículo" in Portuguese. The other options provided are incorrect translations.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Smoke your cigar in the balcony.

    • A. 

      Fume seu cigarro no balcão.

    • B. 

      Fume seu charuto no balcão.

    • C. 

      Fume seu charuto na sacada.

    Correct Answer
    C. Fume seu charuto na sacada.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Fume seu charuto na sacada." The word "charuto" means cigar, and "na sacada" means on the balcony. Therefore, this sentence correctly translates to "Smoke your cigar on the balcony."

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Wait for me at college.

    • A. 

      Me espere no colégio.

    • B. 

      Me espere na faculdade.

    • C. 

      Me espere no colegial.

    Correct Answer
    B. Me espere na faculdade.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Me espere na faculdade" because the sentence "Wait for me at college" implies that the speaker wants the other person to wait for them specifically at the college/university. The word "na" in Portuguese is used to indicate location, so "na faculdade" accurately conveys the intended meaning of waiting at the college. The other options ("no colégio" and "no colegial") refer to different educational levels and do not match the context of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Win the contest.

    • A. 

      Vença com conteúdo.

    • B. 

      Veja a competição.

    • C. 

      Vença a competição.

    Correct Answer
    C. Vença a competição.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Vença a competição" because it translates to "Win the competition" in English, which is the closest meaning to the original phrase "Win the contest." The other options do not accurately convey the intended meaning.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Write a legend.

    • A.

      Leia a lenda.
