Example Question #1 : Spanish Verbs

Please fill in the blank with the correct answer.

Lo digo que en Oslo __________ frío en el invierno. 

Possible Answers:

es

haga

hace

sea

está

Correct answer:

hace

Explanation:

The correct answer is "hace." First the correct verb must be chosen. With expressions of weather in Spanish, the verb "hacer" is used. Then we are left with "hace" and "haga." Even though there is a "que" introducing a new clause in the sentence, the indicative is used, because there is no emotion or doubt expressed in the first clause; therefore, "hace" must be used.
