Which verb form is correct in context? 

No se __________ entrar este edificio; está restringido.

Possible Answers:

permite

permiso

permiten

permitís

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."
