Example Question #2 : Voice Of The Verb In Spanish

Which verb form is correct in context? 

No se __________ entrar este edificio; está restringido.

Possible Answers:

permite

permiten

permitís

permiso

Correct answer:

permite

Explanation:

The impersonal structure "se+permitr+infinitive" is a passive constuction that requires the use of the third person singular in the indicative mood in this context. So, the correct answer is "permite."

English translation: "One may not enter this building; it is restricted."
