    Mi madre ruega que mis hermanos no (dormir) hasta el mediodía los sábados.
    duermen = the Subjunctive is required here = duerman

    Let's look at the reasons for the Subjunctive in the first place. You must analyze the main verb and if you can classify it as:
    1. imposition of will (someone wants, suggests, begs, etc. that someone else do something does not imply that it will become fact)(this includes impersonal expressions also like es importante, es bueno, es mejor, etc.)

    2. emotion (one person is glad, sad, upset, etc. about another person)

    3. doubt, disbelief, denial (including creer, pensar, verdad, cierto used neegatively or interrogatively) about something

    Each time you analyze a main verb, classify it as either l, 2, or 3. The example above is 1 (beg = imposition of will)

    Elena ruega que alguien (recoger) = same type as #1 (recoja)

    Es importante (reciclar).
    reciclar = correct! Only one subject so infinitive.

    Quiero un amigo que no me (mentir).
    miento = it IS subjunctive because it's an indefinite antecedent. This is what I WANT but it may not even exist. the Subjunctive here is mienta.

    You got everything else! ¡Olé! Try to imagine a crystal ball. If you can see in it that it DID happen, IS happenING, WILL happen, etc. it is the Indicative. BUT if that crystal ball is "cloudy" meaning you never know for SURE, then it is Subjunctive.

    Please feel free to ask any other questions you may have. This is one of my favorite things to teach; I cann the Subjunctive "the thinking person's tense."
