Spanish Verb Quiz #14 (Preterite Stem-Changing Verbs)


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    El hombre me (advertir)_________ del peligro.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "advirtió." This is the correct conjugation of the verb "advertir" in the past tense for the third person singular form, which agrees with the subject "el hombre." "Advirtio" is not a correct conjugation in Spanish.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    La señorita no (dormir)_________ bien anoche.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "durmió". In Spanish, the verb "dormir" (to sleep) is conjugated as "durmió" in the preterite tense for the third person singular (él/ella/usted). Therefore, it is the appropriate form to use in this sentence to indicate that the woman did not sleep well last night. "Durmio" is not a valid conjugation of the verb "dormir" in Spanish.

  • 3. 

    Las empleadas (advertir)_________ algunos errores en su informe.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "advirtieron". In this sentence, the verb "advertir" is conjugated in the third person plural preterite tense. This tense is used to talk about past actions that were completed. Therefore, "advirtieron" is the correct conjugation to match the subject "las empleadas" (the employees) and indicate that they warned or noticed some errors in their report.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Él me (mentir)_________ .

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "mintió, mintio" because the verb "mentir" in the past tense is conjugated as "mintió" for the third person singular (él) and as "mintio" for the first and third person singular (yo, él).

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    El señor (repetir)_________ la pregunta dos veces.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "repitió". In Spanish, the verb "repetir" in the past tense for the third person singular is "repitió". This form is used when referring to someone else, such as "el señor" in this case. On the other hand, "repitio" is not a valid conjugation of the verb "repetir" in Spanish.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Las chicas (medir)_________ la tela.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "midieron" because it is the past tense form of the verb "medir" which means "to measure" in Spanish. In this sentence, "las chicas" is the subject and "la tela" is the direct object. Since the action of measuring the fabric has already been completed in the past, the past tense form "midieron" is used.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Tú (dormir)_________ cinco horas.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "dormiste" because it is the preterite tense conjugation of the verb "dormir" (to sleep) in the second person singular form. This form is used when referring to a past action that was completed by the subject "tú" (you). Therefore, the sentence translates to "You slept five hours."

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    El cocinero (freír)_________ el pollo.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "frió." In Spanish, the verb "freír" means "to fry." When conjugated in the past tense for the third person singular, it becomes "frió." Therefore, the sentence "El cocinero frió el pollo" translates to "The cook fried the chicken."

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    En ese momento nosotros (preferir)_________ no hablar contigo.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "preferimos" because the sentence is in the past tense and the subject "nosotros" is plural. "Preferimos" is the conjugated form of the verb "preferir" in the first person plural (we) form. It means "we preferred" or "we would rather." In this context, it indicates that at that moment, the speaker and others preferred not to talk to the person being referred to.
