Example Question #3 : Verb Tense In Spanish

Fill in the blank with the correct answer. 

Cuando era joven, yo __________ cada día. 

Possible Answers:

he caminado

caminaría

caminé

caminaba

había caminado

Correct answer:

caminaba

Explanation:

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. 

Example Question #11 : Sat Subject Test In Spanish

Fill in the blank with the correct answer.

Estamos pensando __________ tí, mejórate pronto!

Possible Answers:

con

en

de

a

sobre

Correct answer:

en

Explanation:

The correct preposition to use in this case is "en." The verb "pensar" can take many prepositions after it, each one affecting the meaning slightly. With "en" afterwards it means "about." Both "de" and "sobre" are used when "pensar" means "to have an opinion" about something. Both "con" and "a" are incorrect.
