Example Questions

Example Question #1 : Spanish Essentials

Which adjective, when used in the blank, creates a logical and grammatically correct sentence?

Los platos están __________, pues hay que lavarlos.

Possible Answers:

sucio

sucias

sucios

rotos

Correct answer:

sucios

Explanation:

The correct answer is "sucios" (dirty) because it agrees in number and gender with "los platos" and because it makes sense in context. The answer choice "rotos" (broken) wouldn't make sense because there's no reason to wash broken plates.

English translation: "The plates are dirty, so one must wash them."

Example Question #1 : Spanish Vocabulary: Adjectives

Which adjective properly completes the sentence?

El dispositivo electrónico no está cargando; me parece que estar __________.

Possible Answers:

involucrado

roto

maltratado

calificado

Correct answer:

roto

Explanation:

Based on context, only "roto," which means broken, would fit in this sentence. "Calificado" means qualified or proven, "maltratado" means mistreated or abused, and "involucrado" means involved (in something).

English translation: "The electronic device is not charging; it seems to me that it is broken."

Example Question #2 : Ap Spanish Language

Which adjective properly completes the sentence?

No tengo hermanos; soy un hijo _______.

Possible Answers:

segundo

únicos

primera

único

Correct answer:

único

Explanation:

Both "único" (only) and "segundo" (second) agree in number and gender with "hijo;" however, only "único" (only) fits in context, as it would not make sense for someone to say that they are an "hijo segundo" (second child) if that person is claiming not to have any siblings.

English translation: "I do not have siblings; I am an only child."
