Can someone explain why the answer is "consigues" and not "consigue"? Thanks.
Seguir and its derivatives: conseguir, perseguir are semi-regular verbs in Spanish in El Presente.
Have a look at this table:
to achieve /to be able
él / ella / usted
|nosotros / nosotras
|vosotros / vosotras
|ellos / ellas / ustedes
- how the vowel -e- becomes -i- EXCEPT for nosotros/nosotras and vosotros/vosotras where it remains -e-.
- how in the yo form -gu- is replaced with a -g-.

The question in the knowledge check was "Usted ________ todo lo que quiere." I chose "consigue", but it said the correct answer was "consigues"...
Sorry, I looked at it again and I had it backwards, the site reported the correct answer as "consigue". Sorry for the confusion.
No problem Richy. :))
