Example Question #1 : Verb Tense In Spanish

Fill in the blank with the correct answer. 

Cuando era joven, yo __________ cada día. 

Possible Answers:

caminaba

había caminado

caminaría

caminé

he caminado

Correct answer:

caminaba

The correct answer is "caminaba." Since the action happened repeatedly in the past, the tense that is needed is the imperfect. The other tenses cannot work, since they do not express the continuous action of the imperfect.
