Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Yo (entender) =

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "entiendo" because "Yo entender" is an incomplete sentence. In Spanish, the verb "entender" means "to understand" and when conjugated for the first person singular pronoun "yo" it becomes "entiendo". Therefore, the correct form of the verb in this sentence is "entiendo" to make a complete and grammatically correct statement.

    Ella (pensar) =

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "piensa" because it is the correct conjugation of the verb "pensar" in the third person singular form. In Spanish, when conjugating regular -ar verbs like "pensar" in the present tense, we add -a to the stem for the third person singular form.

    Los chicos (preferir) =

    Explanation
    The correct answer for this question is "prefieren". In Spanish, the verb "preferir" means "to prefer".

This form matches the subject and is the correct conjugation for this sentence.

     Tú (entender) =

    Explanation

In this case, "tú" is the subject pronoun for the second person singular, and the present tense conjugation of "entender" for "tú" is "entiendes."

    Carmen y tú (cerrar) =

    Explanation

    Nosotras (merendar) =

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "merendamos." In Spanish, the verb "merendar" means "to have a snack" or "to have a light meal." The subject "nosotras" indicates that the action is being performed by a group of females. In the present tense, the conjugation of "merendar" for the first-person plural (we) is "merendamos."

    La Señora Ricardo (preferir) =

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "prefiere." In Spanish, the verb "preferir" means "to prefer."

In Spanish, when conjugating verbs, the ending of the verb changes depending on the subject. In this case, "las chicas" is a plural subject, so the verb ending also needs to be plural, which is "-an" in this case.
