Walking along the side of the road, ______. (A) the car nearly hit me as it went by (B) I was nearly hit by a car as it went by (C) the car, which nearly hit me, went by (D) it was the car that nearly hit me as it went by me
Here the answer is (B). The first part of the sentence (clause) "Walking along the side of the road" implies a subject that is in the middle of the action of walking along the road. The subject is to be announced in the second part of the sentence (clause). The appropriate answer here is B, as it implies a walking person, animal, element etc... Logically, a car cannot walk, so A And B are eliminated. As for answer (D), it is to impersonal and unspecific to qualify as the Walking "subject".
Subject: SAT II French
Le .................. de mon immeuble est 564. A. Nombre B. Guide C. Numero D. Nom
In order to identify the missing word, let's first identify the words that we already know and guess. "Immeuble" means building. We have a number preceded by the verb "etre". We can assume that "564" is the number or quantity of something. In that case, we can know eliminate "Guide" which litterally means "Guide" in English, as well as "Nom" which means "Name" in English. Now, "Nombre" and "Numero" are left. "Nombre" expresses a quantity and means number. "Numero" relates to the "figures" and means number. Logically, we can guess here that 564 is the number (Numero) of the building in question (and not the number (nombre) of buildings there are)
How do you form the passe compose?
The passe compose is a formed with an auxiliary verb (etre or avoir) and the past participle of a verb. The auxiliary verb is conjugated in the present tense. Here is the order: Subject + Auxiliary Verb + Past Participle For example: 1. Tu as bu. TU (Subject) + AS (Auxiliary verb avoir conjugated in the present tense) + BU (verb "boire" in the past participle form) 2. Il est parti Il (Subject) + EST (Auxiliary verb "etre" conjugated in the present tense) + PARTI (verb "boire" in the past participle form)
