honte

peur

envie

hâte

faim

faim

Explanation:

This sentence means "I didn't eat anything this morning. I am __________." It does not make sense to next say that you are scared or ashamed. It also does not make sense to say that you are looking forward to something or that you want something.

Example Question #1 : Descriptive Adjectives

Choose the grammatically correct sentence.

Possible Answers:

Tu as un bel appartement.

Tu as une belle appartement.

Tu as un beau appartement.

Tu as un appartement beau.

Tu as une appartement belle.

Correct answer:

Tu as un bel appartement.

Explanation:

"Appartement" is a masculine noun, but it also begins with a vowel sound. The preceding adjective cannot end in a vowel sound as well. "Bel" is a masculine adjective used to place a consonant between the two vowel sounds. Adjectives referring to beauty are always placed before the noun.
