Concept Test #2 – Indefinite Determiners

http://www.laits.utexas.edu/tex/gr/det4.html

Fill in the blank with the correct indefinite article: un, une, des, de.

  1. Tex : Je voudrais ______ café (masc.).
  2. Tammy et Tex sont ________ amis.
  3. Tammy et Fiona sont _________ bonnes amies.
  4. Tammy est _________ fille (fem.) merveilleuse.
  5. Tex est ______ prof. intelligent.
  6. Fiona est ________ fourmi (fem.) loyale.
  7. Joe-Bob et Corey sont ________ animaux ridicules.
  8. Tex, Trey, et Rita sont _____ tatous typiques au Texas.
  9. Corey est ______ ami de Tex.
  10. Tex est ______ tatou (masc.) amusant.
  11. Bette est _________ étudiante à UT.
  12. Joe-Bob est ________ étudiant à A&M.

The rules:

  • un and une become des when plural (#2,7,8)
  • In a negative sentence, the indefinite articles un, une and des are repalced by de or d’….except that following the verb être, the indefinite articles un, une, des remain unchanged in the negative.
  • Before a plural adjective which precedes a nouns, des usually becomes de. If the adjective comes after the nouns, des does not change to de. (#3)
