Ok, here is the first part. The bold, blue answers are the right ones.
I'm sure of everything; the only thing that surprises me is the fact that on 2 occasions you can give more than 1 correct answer...


--------------


6.Sylvie est plus __ que Tom.
A.intelligent (masculin)
B.intelligente
C.patient (masculin)

7.Il a plus d'argent que (qu')__.
A.il (que lui)
B.toi
C.je (que moi)

8.La Porsche est __ belle que la BMW.
A.autant de
B.plus de
C.aussi

9.Clarisse est __ etudiante de la classe. => Has to be: "étudiante"
I'm pretty sure all three are right.
A.la plus intelligente
B.la moins serieuse
=> Has to be: "sérieuse"
C.la plus jolie

10.Nous avons le plus __ talent.
A.du
B.de la
C.de (most = "le plus DE" )

11.Tom est le __ etudiante. => Wrong. Has to be: "Tom est le___ étudiant."
A.bon
B.meilleur "Tom is the BETTER student"
C.meilleure (féminin)

12.Paris est la plus belle ville __ monde.
A.dans le
B.de
C.du (du = masculin form of "of the" )

13.Louise est la fille __.
It certainly is not B. - and I'm quite sure there is nothing wrong with A. nor C.
A.la plus belle
B.meilleure
C.la plus sympathique

14.Henri est la garcon __ travailleur de la classe. => this is wrong. Has to be: "Henri est LE garcon..."
A.la plus
B.la moins
C.le plus

15.Elle a __ argent __ moi.
A.moins, que (should have been: "moins d'argent que moi")
B.plus, que (should have been: "plus d'argent que moi")
C.autant d', que

16.Nous sommes moins __ que le professeur.
A.timide (singulier)
B.patients (there is more than 1 in "nous" -> pluriel)
C.impatient (singulier)

17.Maintenant, les autos sont plus rapides __ autrefois.
A.de
B.d'
C.qu'

18.Je suis __ que ma soeur en maths.
A. autant
B.moins bon
C.aussi bons

19.Je suis __ en francais que ma soeur.
A.meilleurs

Yeah the three are correct but if I had to choose one, I'd say "la plus jolie" because it sounds better than the other two. I think we'd rather say:
-Clarisse est l'étudiante la plus intelligente de la classe.
-Clarisse est l'étudiante la moins sérieuse de la classe.

Same for question 13... I'd say "la plus sympathique" because I think I'd say "Louise est la plus belle fille." but it's just a feeling... another french might say the exact opposite. Grammatically both are correct.

Thanks guys! Actually it's not a class. It's an independent course and I just submit the answers online. LOL, I got 27 questions right.

Number Right: 27
Lesson Number 1 Number Missed: 3
Your Score: 27 points
Your high score on this progress evaluation indicates you have an excellent understanding of the material in this lesson.

You will receive a lesson report for each of the two answer forms you submit. We hope the comments and suggestions in these reports will be helpful.

The comments below will help you locate the correct answers to the questions you answered incorrectly.

Question Number Your Answer Comment
3 A The near future construction consists of two parts (aller + an infinitive); whereas, the future is a simple tense (it only has one part). Review the future tense on page 244 in your text.
9 A This choice is incorrect given the placement of the blank in the sentence. Since the blank precedes the noun, a prenominal adjectival comparison is called for. Intelligente is an adjective that is placed after the noun. The correct choice is la plus jolie. Review the superlative on page 238 in your text and the Lesson 01 Commentary.
13 A You have chosen an answer for a prenominal adjective, but notice that the blank is placed after the noun in this question. The correct choice is la plus sympathique. See the Lesson 01 Commentary.

I have to do like 9 more of these, would you guys mind helping me through it?
