  1. Grandfather likes to drill.
    Each answer has correctly translated 'Grandfather likes'. However, the first answer states 'likes to sing'. The third answer states 'likes to rake', and the last answer states 'likes to sleep'. The second answer, on the other hand, states 'likes to drill' and is the proper full translation.
  2. The manager invaded the apartment.
    Each answer has correctly translated 'the manager' and 'the apartment'. The verb is invaded which is a past tense verb. The last answer shows a present tense form of the verb so it can be eliminated. Next you need to determine the pronoun for the manager. That would be he. The first answer states 'he took' and the third answer states 'he involved'. Neither of these is correct. The second answer states 'he invaded' and contains the proper full translation.
  3. The book is in the library.
    Each sentence has correctly translated 'is in the library'. However, the second answer states that the bird is in the library. The third answer states that the butter is in the library, and the last answer states that the cow is in the library. Those are definitely not correct. The first answer states that the book is in the library and it contains the proper full translation.
  4. Charles’ brother goes to college.
    To get this one correct you must pay attention to the order of the words. Note that in Spanish possession is not shown with an apostrophe. Therefore, the third answer can be eliminated as the improper form. To show that the brother is Charles’ brother, in Spanish it would be shown as 'the brother of Charles', i.e., el hermano de Carlos. The last answer is the only answer to show this correctly and it is the only correct order of all of the words.
  5. Zachery plays the French horn.
    Each answer has correctly translated Zachery and 'the French horn'. The verb is plays which is a present tense verb. The first and last answers show the past tense form of the verb so they can be eliminated. Next determine which pronoun can replace Zachery. That would be he. The second answer states 'I play' which is not correct. The third answer states 'he plays' and contains the proper full translation.
  6. She needed to add cinnamon.
    Each sentence has correctly translated 'She needed to add'. However, the first answer states that she needed to add blueberries. The second answer states she needed to add spice, and the last answer states she needed to add cheese. All of these are incorrect. The third answer states that she needed to add cinnamon and it contains the proper full translation.
  7. Where are my stockings?
    Each of the answers has correctly translated 'are my stockings'. Therefore, you need to focus on the question word for 'where'. The second answer asks how. The third answer asks which, and the last answer asks why. On the other hand, the first answer asks where and contains the proper full translation.
  8. Ned ate three hot dogs.
    Each answer has correctly translated 'Ned ate' and 'hot dogs' leaving only the number three to be translated. The first answer says 5. The second answer says 7, and the third answer says 30. The last answer does state 3 and shows the proper full translation.
  9. Karen won a ticket!
    This one is a little tricky because each answer has correctly translated 'Karen won a ticket'. However, you need to also pay attention to the punctuation marks. The given sentence shows an exclamation point (!). Therefore, it must be in the answer and in Spanish it must come before and after the sentence. Only the second answer shows the correct usage of the punctuation mark.
  10. My uncle gave me a cellphone.
    Each answer has correctly translated 'my uncle' and 'a cellphone'. The verb is gave which is the past tense form of the verb. The third and last answers show the present tense form of the verb so they can be eliminated. In Spanish when something is given to a person, it is stated in Spanish as 'to me he gave'. This means that 'me' comes before the verb. The first answer shows it after the verb. The second answer shows the correct word order and proper full translation.
