Question:

Cual es la forma corecta para el verbo "barrer" en esta oracion? (What is the correct form of the verb "barrer"/to do in this sentence? Quiero que tu _____________ el piso. Te toca a ti hacerlo.

Jillian A.
Answer:

Answer: barras Explanation: The speaker is asking an informal friend or family member to sweep the floor, stating that it is "their turn" (te toca a ti hacerlo). Since this is a request, we use the subjunctive form of barrer, changing -er to an -a and adding -s, making -as, since we add an -s in the "tu" form of conjungated verbs in the present simple and subjunctive mood. Normally, if we stated "You sweep the floor," or "(Tu) barres el suelo," the -er conjungation would keep the -e ending.

Question:

What type of sentence structure is this? Many students have taken most of their coursework online in the past year since COVID restrictions have limited in-person teaching. a) Simple b) Compound c) Complex d) Compound-complex

Jillian A.
Answer:

Answer: c) Complex Explanation: Complex sentences have an independent clause and a dependent clause. In this sentence, we begin with an independent clause (Many students have taken most of their coursework online in the past year), which contains a subject and a predicate and can stand alone as a complete (simple) sentence. The second clause, "since COVID restrictions have limited in-person teaching" also contains a subject and a predicate, but the subordinating conjunction "since" makes it dependent on the previous clause to make complete sense.
