    Explanation
    The correct answer is "vous seriez malades." This is because the sentence is in the conditional tense, indicating a hypothetical situation. The phrase "si vous mangiez trop de dinde" translates to "if you ate too much turkey." In this hypothetical scenario, the correct verb form to use is "seriez," which is the conditional form of the verb "être" (to be) in the second person plural. Therefore, the correct translation is "you would be sick."

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "va courir." This is because the phrase "Si tu as pris trop de café" is a conditional statement meaning "If you have had too much coffee." In this context, "va courir" means "go for a run." Therefore, the correct response suggests that if you have had too much coffee, the best course of action is to go for a run.

    Correct Answer
    A. Je serais allé/e aux Beaux-Arts.
    Explanation

The phrase "si j’avais su dessiner" means "if I had known how to draw," and "je serais allé/e aux Beaux-Arts" translates to "I would have gone to the Fine Arts." This construction expresses a past unrealized action based on a condition that did not happen.

The phrase "si elle était allée à Tahiti" suggests that she did not actually go to Tahiti, but if she had gone, she would have been happy. Therefore, the correct verb form is "aurait été," which means "would have been."
