  6. Tammy : Tex oublie souvent ________ livre.
  7. Tammy : Ah Tex, ________ amour!
  8. Tex : Tammy est ________ amie.
  9. Tammy: Tex, Trey, et Rita? _______ grand-père est adorable.
  10. Corey et Joe-Bob aiment Tammy et Tex. Ils sont ______ amis.
  11. Tammy : J’aime la soeur de Tex, mais ______ frère est bizarre.
  12. Bette : La famille de Tammy aime Tex beaucoup, surtout _____ parents.

The tricks:

  • This entire test is tricky because it assumes you know the perspective of who is speaking, which dictates the possessive determiners. If you can fill out the matrix with the proper masculine, feminine and plural for my, your (fam), his/her/its, our, your (formal/plural) and their…you are ready to move on.
