    Explanation
    The given answer "present" refers to the tense of the verb "hablo." In Spanish, the present tense is used to describe actions that are currently happening or habitual actions. Since "hablo" is the first person singular form of the verb "hablar" (to speak), it indicates that the subject is speaking in the present.

    Correct Answer
    B. Preterite
    Explanation
    "Estuve" is the preterite form of the verb "estar" in Spanish. The preterite tense is used to describe completed actions in the past. Therefore, "estuve" indicates that the action of being or existing occurred at a specific point in the past and has already finished. The other verb tenses listed (present, imperfect, future, conditional) do not accurately describe the past completion of the action, making "preterite" the correct answer.

    • E.

      Conditional

    Correct Answer
    C. Imperfect
    Explanation
    The word "comía" is in the imperfect tense. In Spanish, the imperfect tense is used to describe past actions that were ongoing or habitual. It is often used to provide background information or to set the scene in a narrative. In this case, "comía" indicates that someone was eating in the past, but it doesn't specify when or for how long. The other tenses listed (present, preterite, future, conditional) do not match the given word "comía," so the correct answer is imperfect.

    Correct Answer
    E. Conditional
    Explanation
    The word "comería" is in the conditional tense. The conditional tense is used to express hypothetical or uncertain actions or events that would happen in the future, given a certain condition. In this case, "comería" suggests that someone would eat, but only if a certain condition is met. The other tenses listed (present, preterite, imperfect, future) do not convey the same sense of uncertainty or conditionality.

      Conditional

    Correct Answer
    B. Preterite
    Explanation
    The preterite tense is used to talk about completed past actions or events. It indicates a specific moment in the past and is often used to describe a series of actions that happened one after the other. In contrast, the imperfect tense is used to talk about ongoing or habitual actions in the past. The future tense is used to talk about actions that will happen in the future, while the conditional tense is used to talk about hypothetical or uncertain actions. Given that "preterite" is the only past tense option listed, it is the correct answer.

    The word "sabremos" is a conjugation of the verb "saber" in the future tense. In Spanish, the future tense is used to talk about actions or events that will happen in the future. It is formed by adding the appropriate endings to the infinitive form of the verb. In this case, "saber" means "to know," and "sabremos" means "we will know." Therefore, "future" is the correct answer as it accurately describes the tense of the verb "sabremos."
