1. Il veut une tomate.

4. Vous devez treize euros à Grégoire.
5. Nous comprenons le français
6. J'écris une lettre.
7. Ils disent la vérité

Here is what I did. Please check for me . Thanks Much.
1. Il a voulu une tomate.
2. Vous avez bu l'eau minérale.
3. Je pourrais apprendre la leçon.
4. Vous avez eu treize Euros à Grégoire.
5. Nous avons compris le français
6.. J'ai écrit une lettre.
7. Ils ont dit la vérité

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Just a few things:

2. Note the "de l'eau" which you must keep in the passé composé. Plus you said "rewrite" which means to keep the subject from the first one. Tu as bu de l'eau minérale.

3. You used the l'imparfait instead of the passé composé. J'ai pu .....

4. The verb is "devoir" "to owe" not "avoir" "to have." Vous avez dû..... Note the accent circonflex on the past participle so it isn't confused with the preposition "du."

Everything else is "parfait!"
