Why is the usage of nosotros as above been marked wrong
In the quiz, the sentence was : Vas a ir con ella al teatro. I know that it doesn't sound quite right to say "Vas a ir consigo al teatro", but why would that be incorrect?
Is it common to use hacer as "gave" in this question? Why not use diste (dar)?
Is it safe to think that:
Haber tenido = sustantivo
Habiendo tenido = adverbio
Habiendo tenido ese accidente, depende de su pareja.
Haber tenido ese accidente lo hizo dependiente de su pareja.
Why in the following example is ser used? I thought that the estar form would be used because cheerful is a an emotion or feeling. Wouldn't this indicate that the group is "always cheerful"?
Ustedes ________ muy alegres.You are very cheerful.
"Acordaos que estamos fríendo esta tortilla a fuego lento."
Shouldn't it be "de que"?
How would you answer these questions?
¿Conoce Ud. nuestros productos gourmets? No, solamente alguno. or No solamente algunos. ¿Prefiero Ud. todos los quesos de la caja? No, solamente alguno. or No, solamente algunos. ¿Desea Ud. estas frutas frescas? No, solamente algunas. or No, solamente alguna.
I see earlier in the thread that you say that "rosado" also means pink. Does the word "rosado" change to "rosada" with a feminine antecedent, or is it invariable, like "rosa"?
El médico quiere que me tome estas pastillas.
Voy a pedirle que me lleve a su casa.
Is the rule for the position of the Me in both sentences that there are two clauses, the second being subjunctive and the verb reflexive therefore owning the M1e? I was confused because both the first and second verbs are conjugated.
"Tu coche no es muy nuevo aunque funcione/funciona estupendamente. (Your car is not very new although it works beautifully.)"
I chose the subjunctive "funcione" here because both the speaker and the listener would know about the car. But this was marked wrong. Why would the indicative be correct?
PS I just read your answer below that the speaker is simply making a declaration. In that case, how do we distinguish this from the case of the speaker stating shared information? It seems that both answers could be correct depending on how one interprets the speaker. This makes it hard to know which answer the system considers to be correct.
