  2. If you are to use "this" you need the forms: este/esta/estos/estas and I do not see that in your sentences. I need to see the complete instructions you were given and any basic sentence or model? In the sentences 1-5 I see the definite article "el/la/los/las."

    Since it's not clear what you were to do, I have no idea if you followed the instructions or not. At any rate, I'll correct the sentences I see.

    3. The verb "gustar" means "to be pleasing to" and not the verb "to like." Therefore it always requires an indirect-object stating to WHOM something is pleasing or things are pleasing. Al gato le gusta (la) leche.

    4. La chica is feminine, singular so the adjective must be also = estudiosa.

    Apparently 11-18 is to use the Preterit and you have done that perfectly.

    19. Even though the indirect object is there as a n oun (a mi hermana), the best grammar will also have the indirect-object pronoun = Le compré un oso, etc. Se lo di por SU cumpleaños.

    20. la bicicleta is feminine, singular so the direct-object must be also = Yo la uso, etc.

    21. Slightly better with "la" Navidad. Yo LOS utilizo (los zapatos = masculine, plural; therefore the object pronoun must be also the same number (singular/plural) and gender (masculine/feminine) as the noun. Also a preposition takes the infinitive = para caminar y hacer ejercicios.

    22. "comprado" is only 1/2 of the verbal construction = he comprado = I have bought OR compré = I bought/did buy. Yo le compré un anillo para mi primo. Se LO di = watch number & gender. 23. It (as the subject pronoun) will be Ella. I'm not sure what you want for the last sentence = It keeps me warm? Ella me mantiene caliente. calor = heat (noun) and caliente = warm (adjective)

    I'll flag this, in case you have further questions.

  3. Oh, when I said *this*, I meant that any words within the asterisks were required in the sentence. Sorry about that.

    Thanks for the help!
