In this sentence it is used as an impersonal verb "toca", but most of the time it is accompanied by an indirect object pronoun to reinforce who needs to do it. We can also sat: The last word should be "say". Thank you.
Hi, can you please help me to understand why ‘Para lo que’ means ‘given how much’ in this sentence.
Hi, surely the English Sentence should read.

Hola, y gracias por responder a mi pregunta.
My question relates to the sentence in this quiz:
"and be able to work on the negative aspects."
Kwizbot: y poder trabajar en los aspectos negativos.
You: y ser capaz de trabajar en los aspectos negativos.
Note: My sentence does translate to : “and be able to work on the negative” aspects.
I wanted to check with you if what I wrote: "ser capaz de" is correct and if not, why not ?
And if my use of "ser capaz de" is correct/acceptable? - I would imagine that
there would be some difference in meaning?..- and if so, what that would be.
Thank you for your help.

(A comment, not a question; I made a mistake in my translation, and I now see why I went wrong) >
I had to scratch my head a bit to see why there is no tilde in 'cuando' in the sentence [in the text]:
"Aún recuerdo cuando teníamos que revelar los carretes" [= I still remember when we had to develop rolls of film ...]
-- particularly after noticing the example: "No recuerdo cómo tomas el té ..." [= I can't remember how you take your tea ...] -- in: Difference between cómo and como (with and without an accent)
I now realise that, in order to carry the tilde, the 'cuándo' or the 'cómo' must be part of an indirect question - which is indeed the case with the second example, but not the first.
Inma, Shui and Silvia - you do indeed provide us with interesting and useful exercises and explanations: Keep up the good work!
I answered both questions, but did not see any opportunity to register my second answer - and see whether I had been correct.
I would like to know that in sentences like' Nosotros estamos en Uruguay esta semana' is it essential to write the Nosotros ? Wouldn't starting with estamos itself indicate 'We are'?.Similarly for the other sentence Vosotros estaís aburridos.....the conjugated verb form itself indicates that it is referring to vosotros. Please clarify.
