complete sentence with subjunctive of verb in parentheses.
My answers are the ones with the astericks - Are they correct - thanks
1 No es verdad que Raul ( ser) ______ un mal excursionista
2 Es probable que Titi y o ( ir) _______a caminar en el bosque nacional.
3 Sam no esta sequra de que Eduardo ( saber) ______donde estamos
4 No es seguro que el trabajo nos ( llegar) ____antes del viernes
5. Es posible que Miguel y Antonio ( venir) a visitamos hoy.
6. No es probale que esa compania les (pagar) _____ biem a sus empleados.
#1. sepa comes from saber. You need the verb ser = sea
#3 = here is where you need sepa
#4 = The subject is "el trabajo" and the infinitive is llegar = llegue
#6. = The subject is "esa compañía" so the verb is to agree with that = pague
NOTE: -gar verbs must add a "u" before the theme vowel "e" because llege would sound like an "h" and you need to keep the hard g = llegar / llegue
In the Present Subjunctive here are the spelling problems:
c = k sound as in buscar = busque OR the spelling to get the "k" sound is:
ca, co, cu, que, qui
g = h as in coger = j in coja or:
ja, jo, ju, ge, gi
g = hard sound as in pagar, adds "u" OR
ga, go, gu, gue, gui
z, as "s" sound in empezar, (or "th" sound in Castellianadds "c" as in empiece (there is also a stem change, e--->ie OR
za, zo, zu, ce, ci
the fifth and last spelling change you won't see very often. It's called the "Gwendolen sound" as in averiguar = güe OR gua, guo (there is no guu), güe, güi
