Forming the singular masculine and feminine of regular adjectives

Forming the singular masculine and feminine of regular adjectives

Question in A1 Focus Test

Mi vecina Patricia es ______.

Hola,

I put "maleduca" because it's a woman, it's singular and when "maleducar" is conjugated in El Presente, it comes up as "maleduca."  Why is it marked wrong? Why is "maleducada" the correct answer?

In relation to that, I don't feel the question has been covered well because we have not encountered that word previously and I cannot find it in any lessons on the Lawless website.

Gracias por la respuesta!

Hola Lyn

You don't need any conjugation here. We are asking for an adjective in the feminine singular form that agrees with the person "Patricia" which is the name of a lady; So, the adjective for "rude" in Spanish is "maleducado/maleducada". In this case you need the feminine form "maleducada".

However, I understand that this adjective may be a bit difficult to know in A1 so I added a hint that hopefuly will help.

Gracias y un saludo
