Example Questions

Example Question #1 : Verbs

Choose the correct conjugation of the verb "acheter" to go in the blank.

Si j'étais riche, j'__________ une belle voiture.

Possible Answers:

achèterais

acheter

achetais

achète

achèterai

Correct answer:

achèterais

Explanation:

This sentence means, "If I were rich, I __________ a beautiful car," with all of the answer choices being conjugations of the verb "acheter," which means "to buy." Since "would buy" fits in the sentence and is the conditional tense, "achetèrais" is the only correct answer.
