Recordar in El Pretérito Imperfecto
In one of the quizes engish scentence "After the blow, you didn't remember anything" one is asked to conjugate recordar in the El Pretérito Imperfecto tense. I used "recordaba" but this was marked as incorrect. recordabas was marked as corrrect. Why is the "You formal" conjugation not correct for the above scentence?
This question relates to:Spanish lesson "Conjugate regular -ar verbs in El Pretérito Imperfecto (imperfect)"
Recordaba would be correct if they asked for "you" usted (formal). But, the question was specific to "you" Tú (informal.)

You are right. There is nothing telling you whether you need the informal or formal form. I added this to the hint: "Conjugate the "tú" form of "recordar" in El Pretérito Imperfecto.", so it is clear now which one we are asking for.
Gracias y un saludo,
