This part consists of a number of incomplete statements, each having four suggested completions. Select the most appropriate completion. Recientemente, un arqueólogo ha ------- nuevas ruinas mayas en Guatemala (A) hecho (B) construido (C) desterrado (D) descubierto
The correct answer is (D) - "descubierto", i.e. "discovered". The word describes what an archaeologist did with respect to some ruins, so the sense of "uncovered" indicated by (D) descubierto is appropriate.
How do you say "I'm 28 years old" in Spanish? Do you say: "Soy 28 años" o "Tengo 28 años"?
