Question:

Complete the blank with the verb "ser" or "estar" in the present tense. Explain your answer. María ________ muy nerviosa por el examen de inglés.

Laurene I.
Answer:

María está muy nerviosa por el examen de inglés. The correct verb is "estar" because in this sentence the word "nerviosa" refers to a state of being that is temporary; Maria is nervous about the exam. "Estar" conjugated to the third person in the present tense is "está". El verbo correcto es "estar" porque en esta oración la palabra "nerviosa" se refiere a un estado temporal. "Estar" conjugado a la tercera persona en presente es "está".
