    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Fill in the blanks with the correct indefinite article. (Un and Une) Marie est ______ fille. 

    Correct Answer
    une
    Une
    Explanation
    Marie est une fille. In French, the indefinite article "une" is used before feminine singular nouns, such as "fille" (girl). Therefore, the correct answer is "une."

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Fill in the blanks with the correct indefinite article. (Un and Une)Marc est _____ garçon. 

    Correct Answer
    un
    Un
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "un". In French, "un" is used as the indefinite article for masculine singular nouns. In this case, "garçon" is a masculine noun, so it is preceded by "un". The second option "Un" is incorrect because it starts with a capital letter, which is not necessary for the indefinite article.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Fill in the blanks with the correct indefinite article. (Un and Une)Je suis _______ fille intelligente.

    Correct Answer
    une
    Une
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "une" or "Une" because the sentence is referring to "fille" which is a feminine noun in French. In French, the indefinite article "une" or "Une" is used before feminine nouns.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Fill in the blank with the correct definite article (le, la or l')____ fille est très grande.

    Correct Answer
    la
    La
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "la" because the word "fille" is a feminine noun in French, and the definite article for feminine nouns is "la". In this sentence, "la fille" means "the girl" and "est très grande" means "is very tall".

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Fill in the blank with the correct definite article (le, la or l')____ école est petite. 

    Correct Answer
    l'
    L'
    l
    L
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "l'". In French, the definite article "l'" is used before words starting with a vowel sound, regardless of the gender of the noun. In this case, "école" starts with a vowel sound, so "l'" is the correct choice. The other options, "L'", "l", and "L", do not follow the rule for using the definite article before a word starting with a vowel sound.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Fill in the blank with the correct definite article (le, la or l')D'où est ___ garçon?

    Correct Answer
    le
    Le
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "le". In this question, we are asking about the origin or location of a boy. The word "garçon" is a masculine noun, so we use the masculine definite article "le" before it. The second option "Le" is also correct, as it is simply the capitalized form of "le". Both "le" and "Le" can be used interchangeably in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Fill in the blank with the correct definite article (le, la or l')Elliot est ___ ami de Janice. 

    Correct Answer
    l'
    L'
    l
    L
    Explanation
    In French, the definite article "l'" is used before a noun that starts with a vowel or a silent "h". Therefore, in this sentence, "l'" is used before the word "ami" because it starts with a vowel sound. The other options, "L'", "l", and "L", are incorrect because they do not follow the rule of using "l'" before a vowel sound.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Fill in the blank with the correct form of the verb être.Je _______ une fille.

    Correct Answer
    suis
    Suis
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "suis". In French, the verb "être" is used to indicate the state of being or to describe someone or something. In this sentence, "Je suis une fille" translates to "I am a girl". The verb "suis" is the correct form of the verb "être" for the subject pronoun "je" (I). The capitalized "Suis" is incorrect as it does not match the subject pronoun.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Fill in the blank with the correct form of the verb être.Il n'_____ pas très grand.

    Correct Answer
    est
    Est
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "est" or "Est" because it is the correct form of the verb "être" in the third person singular. The sentence is negated with "ne pas," so "est" is used instead of "es" or "êtes." The capitalization of "Est" is incorrect as it should be in lowercase.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Fill in the blank with the correct form of the verb être. La fille ______ amusante.

    Correct Answer
    est
    Est
    Explanation
    The correct answer for this question is "est". In French, the verb "être" means "to be". In this sentence, we are describing the girl as "amusante" which means "funny". To match the subject "La fille" (the girl), we use the third person singular form of the verb "être" which is "est". The capitalized option "Est" is incorrect because in French, verbs are not capitalized unless they are at the beginning of a sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    Fill in the blank with the correct form of the verb être.D'où _____ - tu?

    Correct Answer
    es
    Es
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "es" or "Es" because the question is asking "D'où es-tu?" which translates to "Where are you from?" in English. In French, the verb "être" (to be) is conjugated as "es" for the informal second person singular pronoun "tu" and "Es" for the formal second person singular pronoun "vous". Therefore, depending on the context and level of formality, either "es" or "Es" can be used in this sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    Fill in the blank with the correct form of the verb être.Je ________ fort.

    Correct Answer
    suis
    Suis
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "suis". In French, the verb "être" means "to be". The subject pronoun "je" corresponds to the English pronoun "I". Therefore, the correct form of the verb "être" for the subject pronoun "je" is "suis". "Suis" is the first person singular form of the verb "être" in the present tense. It translates to "am" in English.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    Fill in the blank with the correct form of the verb être. L'école n'______ pas amusante.

    Correct Answer
    est
    Est
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "est". In this sentence, "est" is the correct form of the verb "être" (to be) in the third person singular form. It is used to describe the school as not being fun. "Est" is also the correct form of the verb in the second person singular form, but it does not fit the context of the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    Make the following statement negative:Je suis faible. 

    Correct Answer
    Je ne suis pas faible.
    Je ne suis pas faible
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Je ne suis pas faible." This is the negative form of the statement "Je suis faible," which means "I am weak." By adding "ne" before the verb "suis" and "pas" after it, we create the negative form, meaning "I am not weak."

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    Make this sentence negative. Il est assez fort.

    Correct Answer
    Il n'est pas assez fort.
    Il n'est pas assez fort
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Il n'est pas assez fort." This sentence translates to "He is not strong enough." By adding "n'est pas" before "assez fort," we are negating the statement and expressing that the person in question is not strong enough.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    Make this sentence negative. Tu es amusant. 

    Correct Answer
    Tu n'es pas amusant.
    Tu n'es pas amusant
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Tu n'es pas amusant." This is the negative form of the sentence "Tu es amusant," which means "You are funny." By adding "ne" before the verb "es" and "pas" after it, the sentence becomes negative, meaning "You are not funny."

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    Translate the following sentence: I am from Paris.

  • 27. 

    Translate: She is not French.

    Correct Answer
    Elle n'est pas française.
    Elle n'est pas française
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Elle n'est pas française." This is the correct translation of the given sentence "She is not French." The phrase "Elle n'est pas française" directly translates to "She is not French" in English.

    Rate this question:

  • 28. 

    Translate the following sentence: Where are you from?

    Correct Answer
    D'où es tu?
    D'où es-tu
    D'où es-tu?
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "D'où es tu?, D'où es-tu, D'où es-tu?" These are three variations of the same question in French, asking "Where are you from?" The phrase "D'où es tu?" is a casual form, while "D'où es-tu?" is a more formal way of asking the same question. Both variations are correct and commonly used in French conversations.

    Rate this question:

  • 29. 

    Translate. I am very mean. (m)

    Correct Answer
    Je suis très méchant.
    Je suis très méchant
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Je suis très méchant, Je suis très méchant." This is because the phrase "Je suis très méchant" is translated from English to French as "I am very mean." The repetition of the phrase emphasizes the speaker's statement and adds emphasis to their description of themselves as being very mean.
