Example Question #1 : Direct, Indirect, And Double Object Pronouns In Spanish

Fill in the blank with the correct pronoun

 

 

“A ella no le gustan las fresas. Entonces, ella no __________ va a comer.”

 

 

Possible Answers:

Los

Las

Lo

La

Correct answer:

Las

Explanation:

The blank requires the use of a direct object pronoun. The pronoun must agree in gender and number with the original direct object. In this sentence, “las fresas” is the direct object; therefore, the correct direct object pronoun is “las.”

—"¿Compraste los libros?"

 

—"Si, __________ compré."

Possible Answers:

lo

ellos

las

los

la

Correct answer:

los

Explanation:

The direct object must agree with the noun that it replaces. "Libros" is masculine plural, and the correct direct object in the masculine plural form is "los." 

Example Question #1 : Direct, Indirect, And Double Object Pronouns In Spanish

Fill in the blank with the correct answer.

—¿Quieres leer un libro a Marta?

 

—Ya estoy __________.

 

Possible Answers:

leyéndolelo

leyéndosele

leyéndoselo 

leyéndolose

leéndoselo

Correct answer:

leyéndoselo 

Explanation:

The correct gerund of "leer" is "leyendo." This is due to the double-object pronoun; the indirect "le"-to her and "lo"- it (the book) are next to each other, so the "le" must change to "se." Indirect objects always come before direct objects.
