the HINT: conjugate 'crear' in el presente subjuntivo.
I wrote 'crean' but was marked incorrect - it should be 'creen'
I am sure that I am indeed wrong - but I don't understand why?!
This is a very common mistake because of the similarity between the verbs creer (to believe) and crear (to create); you can see there is only one letter that is different.
When conjugating these verbs in the present subjunctive we have different endings because one is an -ar verb and the other an -er verb, so:
Plus, if you look at their conjugation in the present subjuntive, they coincide with the "other verb" conjugation in the present indicative!! (apart from the yo form)
It is a bit confusing and it takes some time to get used to these two verbs, but as I said, you are not alone.
In the present subjunctive, the -ar verbs are conjugated with -e endings (and er and ir verbs are conjugated with -a endings) So, ellas crean in present indicative tense, but ellas creen in present subjunctive.
