Example Question #1 : Using Relative Pronouns In Latin

Translate the English in quotes to the correct Latin option. 

"This town" is large. 

Possible Answers:

haec oppidum

hic oppidum

hunc oppidum

huic oppidum

hoc oppidum

Correct answer:

hoc oppidum

Explanation:

The noun oppidum is neuter and in this case is in the nominative singular. The correct demonstrative pronoun that agrees with a neuter nominative singular noun is hoc. 

Example Question #4 : Sat Subject Test In Latin

Choose the correct answer from the options below.

__________ est Flavia?

Possible Answers:

Quis

Quid

Quam

Quae

Quo 

Correct answer:

Quis

Explanation:

The correct answer is "quis", meaning "who" or "what." The sentence translates to "Who is Flavia?" It should be remembered that the verb "to be" takes the nominative and not the accusative, thus eliminating all the other options, except for "quid" which is neuter and not used for people, and "quae" which is plural.
