Example Question #1 : Indicative / Indicativo
Please fill in the blank with the correct answer.
Lo digo que en Oslo __________ frío en el invierno.
The correct answer is "hace." First the correct verb must be chosen. With expressions of weather in Spanish, the verb "hacer" is used. Then we are left with "hace" and "haga." Even though there is a "que" introducing a new clause in the sentence, the indicative is used, because there is no emotion or doubt expressed in the first clause; therefore, "hace" must be used.
