A quiz on possessive adjectives.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Give the translation. "The boy has his books."

    • A.

      El chico tiene su libros.

    • B.

      El chico tiene tus libros

    • C.

      El chico tiene sus libros.

    • D.

      El chico tienen su libros

    Correct Answer
    C. El chico tiene sus libros.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "El chico tiene sus libros." The word "sus" is the correct possessive pronoun to use when referring to "his" books in Spanish. "Tus" means "your" and "su" means "your/his/her" but "sus" specifically refers to "his" books in this context. "Tienen" is not the correct form of the verb "tener" to match with "el chico" which is singular, so it is not the correct answer.

    Type the possessive adjective.The girls eat with their friends in classLas chicas comen con ______  amigas en clase.

    Correct Answer
    sus
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "sus" because it is the possessive adjective that agrees with the plural noun "amigas" and refers to the girls. "Sus" is used to indicate possession or ownership by a group of females, in this case, the girls.

  • 3. 

    They have their book.Ellos _____  ____   libro.

    • C.

      Tienen, sus

    • D.

      Tiene , su

    Correct Answer
    A. Tienen , su
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "tienen, su" because "tienen" is the third person plural form of the verb "tener" (to have), which agrees with the subject "ellos" (they). "Su" is the possessive adjective that agrees with the singular noun "libro" (book) in Spanish. Therefore, the sentence translates to "They have their book."

    • D.

      Ours or yours (informal)

    Correct Answer
    C. His ,hers, yours (formal) or theirs
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "his ,hers, yours (formal) or theirs". This is because the abbreviation "SU" can be translated to different pronouns depending on the context. It can refer to "his" or "hers" when talking about someone's possession, "yours" in a formal context, or "theirs" when referring to a group's possession. The pronoun "ours" or "yours" (informal) are not included as options for translation.

    Choose the correct translation, "Our houses"

    • A.

      Nuestro casa

    • B.

      Nuestros casas

    • C.

      Nuestra casa

    • D.

      Nuestras casas

    Correct Answer
    D. Nuestras casas
    Explanation
    The correct translation for "Our houses" is "nuestras casas" because "nuestras" is the plural form of "nuestra" which means "our" in Spanish, and "casas" is the plural form of "casa" which means "houses". Therefore, "nuestras casas" accurately translates the given phrase.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Translate the following: "You (formal) have your papers"

    • A.

      Usted tiene su papel

    • B.

      Usted tiene sus papeles

    • C.

      Tú tienes tu papel

    • D.

      Usted tiene tus papeles

    Correct Answer
    B. Usted tiene sus papeles
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Usted tiene sus papeles." In Spanish, the possessive pronoun "sus" is used when referring to multiple objects or people. Since "papeles" is plural, the correct pronoun to use is "sus." Additionally, the formal form of "you" is "usted," so "tú" is not the correct pronoun to use in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Give the correct possessive adjective for the following: "Your (informal) cats are ugly!" ____ gatos son feos.

    • A.

      Tus

    • B.

      Tu

    • C.

      Mis

    • D.

      Sus

    Correct Answer
    A. Tus
    Explanation
    The correct possessive adjective for the sentence "Your (informal) cats are ugly! ____ gatos son feos." is "tus". This is because "tus" is the possessive adjective used to indicate ownership by the second person informal singular "you" in Spanish.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    True or False? Possessive adjectives must always agree in number and sometimes in gender with the object "possessed" and not the person doing the possessing.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Possessive adjectives must agree in number and sometimes in gender with the object being possessed, not with the person who possesses it. This means that the form of the possessive adjective changes depending on whether the object is singular or plural, and sometimes depending on its gender. Therefore, the answer "True" is correct as it accurately reflects this rule.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Give the correct possessive adjective: "Our nephews are intelligent."_____ sobrinos son inteligentes. 

    • A.

      Sus

    • B.

      Nuestra

    • C.

      Nuestros

    • D.

      Nuestro

    Correct Answer
    C. Nuestros
    Explanation
    The correct possessive adjective in Spanish to match the sentence "Our nephews are intelligent" is "nuestros." This is because "nuestros" is the plural form of "nuestro," which means "our" in English. Since "nephews" is plural, we use the plural form of the possessive adjective.
