Grammar - Verbs Olympics!

This Spanish Difficult Review quiz is the fourth and final athletic verb quiz in this series. That means you have made it to the verbs Olympics! As you may recall, the first quiz was titled Grammar: Verbs 2K Run!, the second quiz was Grammar: Verbs Marathon! and the third quiz was Grammar: Verbs Triathlon!. If you have not already visited and taken each of those quizzes, now would be a good time to go back and look at them. They are each part of the warm-up that was leading you to the verbs Olympics!

As was mentioned in the third quiz of this series, you are in the process of training your brain to go quickly back and forth between English and Spanish. Here you will be going from Spanish to English. The more you practice going back and forth, the more easily both languages will flow for you – especially when it comes to actually speaking the languages.

In this quiz, just as was the challenge in the second quiz of this series was, you will be shown ten Spanish sentence with each containing two verbs in capitalized letters. Your Olympic challenge is to quickly locate their English translations along with the appropriate pronoun forms. What does it mean to find the appropriate pronoun form? If a sentence reads: Madre escribió, you will need to remember which pronoun can replace Madre. As madre means mother then the pronoun that can replace mother is she. Escribió is in the past tense and means wrote. Therefore, the correct answer for 'Madre escribió' would be 'she wrote' and not 'Mother wrote'. Always look for the appropriate pronoun in the answers. Now – are you ready for the Olympic challenge? Then you may now BEGIN the quiz!

  1. Miguel y Davíd TOMARON el dinero y CORRIERON.
    This sentence reads: Michael and David took the money and ran. Next you need to determine the pronoun that can replace Michael and David. That would be they. The verbs are both in the past tense which means that the first, second and last answers can be eliminated as they each show different tenses. The third answer is the correct tense and shows the correct pronoun.
  2. Él BEBIÓ la leche y luego él COMIÓ las galletas.
    This sentence reads: He drank milk and then ate cookies. The pronoun for both verbs has been given, i.e., he. The verbs are both in the past tense. You also now know that bebió means drank and comió means ate. The second answer is, therefore, the correct answer.
  3. Helen PONDRÁ las flores en la mesa y luego IRÁ a casa.
    This sentence reads: Helen will put the flowers on the table and then she will go home. Next you need to determine which pronoun can replace Helen. That would be she. The correct answer must show the pronoun form which means that the first and third answers can be eliminated. Both verbs are in the future tense which means the second answer can now be eliminated. The last answer is the correct tense, the correct translation and shows the correct pronoun.
  4. El sol HACE mi abuela TOSER.
    This one might be a little tricky. The sentence reads: The sun makes my grandmother cough. This means that the first verb hace means makes and is in the present tense. The next verb is cough. The grandmother will cough if she is in the sun but we do not know this is happening now. It is not an active verb so it remains a base verb. In other words, the literal translation would be: The sun makes my grandmother [have to] cough. When 'to' comes before a verb, it is a base form verb. The pronoun for sun is the indirect pronoun of 'it'. The third answer shows the correct verbs, the correct translation and the correct pronouns.
  5. ASUMÍ lo peor, pero lo ERA lo mejor.
    This sentence reads: I assumed the worst but it was the best. The first verb’s form shows you that it is in the 'I' pronoun form. This now means that the third and last answers can be eliminated. The second verb has 'lo' before it and 'lo' is the indirect pronoun for 'it'. Both verbs are in the past tense. The first answer is the correct tense and shows the correct pronouns.
  6. Los niños BAILARÁN y los profesores CANTARÁN.
    This sentence reads: The children will dance and the teachers will sing. Next you need to determine which pronoun can replace the children (that would be they) and the teachers (will also be they).

The third answer is the correct tense, the correct translation and shows the correct pronouns.
  7. Nuestro equipo GANÓ, pero su equipo PERDIÓ.
    This sentence reads: Our team won, but their team lost. Next you need to determine the pronoun that can replace our [nuestro] team (that would be they) and their [su] team (would also be they). Both verbs are in the past tense. The last answer is the correct tense and shows the correct pronouns.
  8. El sacerdote ABRE el servicio con una oración antes él ANUNCIA el tema.
    This sentence reads: The priest opens the service with a prayer before he announces the topic. Next you need to determine the pronoun that can replace the priest. That would be he. The second pronoun he has been given. Both verbs are in the present tense. The second answer is the correct tense, correct translation and correct pronoun form.
  9. Roberto y yo DIVORCIAREMOS si RESOLVEMOS todo.
    This sentence reads: Robert and I will divorce if we solve everything. You’re you need to determine the pronoun that can replace Robert and I. Since 'I' is included the pronoun will be we for both verbs. The first verb is in the future tense and the second verb is in the present tense. This means that the second, third and last answers can be eliminated as they show incorrect verb tenses and pronouns. The first answer is the correct tense, the correct translation and the correct pronouns.
  10. Usted TOCA mi corazón y eso me HACE feliz.
    This sentence reads: You touch my heart and that makes me happy. The pronoun of 'you' [singular formal] has been given for the first verb. For the second verb, the word 'that' (que) becomes the indirect pronoun 'it'. Both verbs are in the present tense. The first answer can be eliminated as it shows a past tense verb and the third answer can be eliminated as it shows the pronoun for he.
