    The correct answer is "hablaron" because it is the past tense form of the verb "hablar" which means "to speak".

In this case, the question is asking if the person sold their car, and the response is "No, I didn't sell my car yet." The correct form of the verb "vender" in the past tense for the first person singular (I) is "vendí".
