Example Questions

Example Question #1 : Ap Spanish Language

Fill in the blank with the correct answer. 

Esta cama es __________ que esa cama. 

Possible Answers:

más mal

la peor

más peor

peora

peor

Correct answer:

peor

Explanation:

The correct answer is "peor." "Peor" is the comparative version of the adjective "mal," so "más mal" and "más peor" cannot exist in Spanish. Likewise because of the context, "la peor;" "the worst" cannot be used in a comparison, only as a superlative. "Peor" is an adjective that does not change based on gender, so "peora" is also wrong.

Tengo __________ del mundo. 

Possible Answers:

el perro más bueno

el perro mejor

el más buen perro

el mejore perro

el mejor perro

Correct answer:

el mejor perro

Explanation:

The superlative version of the adjective "bueno;" "good" is "el mejor." "Mejor" goes before the noun.
