Questions and Answers

    • C.

      Va

    • D.

      Aille

    Correct Answer
    A. Est allé
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "est allé." This is because the sentence is in the past tense and the subject "Paul" is masculine singular. In French, the verb "aller" (to go) is conjugated as "je suis allé" in the past tense for a male subject. Therefore, "est allé" is the correct conjugation for "Paul" in this sentence.

      As fini

    • D.

      Aies fini

    Correct Answer
    D. Aies fini
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "aies fini" because the sentence is expressing doubt or uncertainty about whether the person finished their homework last night. In French, when using the verb "douter que" (to doubt that) or similar expressions, we use the subjunctive mood. In this case, the subjunctive form of the verb "finir" (to finish) is "aies fini" which agrees with the second person singular pronoun "tu" (you).

      Aies pu

    Correct Answer
    B. Puisses
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "puisses." In this sentence, the verb "pouvoir" is in the subjunctive form because it expresses a desire or a wish. The subject "tu" requires the second person singular form of the verb, which is "puisses." This form is used to indicate the ability or possibility of coming to the party tomorrow.

      Ait vendu

    • D.

      Vende

    Correct Answer
    A. Vend
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "vend". This is because the sentence is in the present tense and "vend" is the correct conjugation of the verb "vendre" for the subject "Marc".

      Sois revenu

    • D.

      Es revenu

    Correct Answer
    B. Reviennes

      Rates

    • B.

      Aies raté

    • C.

      As raté

    Correct Answer
    B. Aies raté
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "aies raté". This is because the sentence is in the negative form and requires the use of the subjunctive mood. In French, when expressing doubt or disbelief, the subjunctive is used after certain expressions, such as "ne pense pas que" (do not think that). The correct conjugation of the verb "rater" in the subjunctive mood for the second person singular is "aies raté".

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Je crois que vous ____________(descendre) dans la cave hier soir.

      Soyez descendu

    • B.

      êtes descendu

    • C.

      Descendez

    • D.

      Descendiez

    Correct Answer
    B. êtes descendu
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "êtes descendu." This is because the verb "descendre" is in the past tense, and when using the auxiliary verb "être" in the passé composé, the past participle of "descendre" must agree in gender and number with the subject. In this case, the subject is "vous," which is a second person plural pronoun, so the past participle must be in the masculine plural form, which is "descendu."

      Puissions

    • D.

      Ayons pu

    Correct Answer
    A. Pouvons
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "pouvons". In this sentence, the verb "pouvoir" is used in the present tense to express the hope or possibility of finishing the project before tomorrow. Therefore, the correct form of the verb is "pouvons" which is the first person plural form of the present tense.

    • D.

      Est sorti

    Correct Answer

      Ait mis

    • D.

      A mis

      Mangiez

    • D.

      Ayez mangé

    Correct Answer
    B. Avez mangé
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "avez mangé". This is because the sentence is in the present tense and the subject "vous" is plural, indicating that the correct verb form should be in the second person plural. The verb "avoir" (to have) is conjugated in the present tense as "avez" for the second person plural. The past participle of the verb "manger" (to eat) is "mangé", so the correct answer is "avez mangé" which means "you have eaten".

    • A.

      Aller

    • B.

      Aille

    Correct Answer
    A. Aller

    • A.

      Comprendre

      Comprennes

    Correct Answer
    B. Comprennes
    Explanation
    The given sentence is in the present tense and the subject "je" is used, indicating the first person singular. In French, when using the verb "parler" (to speak) in order to express a purpose, we need to use the conjunction "pour que" followed by the subjunctive form of the verb. In this case, the correct subjunctive form of "comprendre" for the subject "tu" is "comprennes". Therefore, the correct answer is "comprennes".
