Can this be imperative? "Open the door"?
Generally that only works with the implied "You" subject. If it said "Apri la porta," it should be ok, but in this case "apre" translates as "opens" not "open."
what about the "polite" form of imperative? would that have to be "Lei apre la porta."?
The "polite" form is 'apra'. Apre can ONLY be lui or lei.
Had apri la porta before this one which is a listening exercise and sounds the exact same.
Why isn't "The door opens" valid? Isn't that how you would write that also?
That would be "La porta apre."
"La porta si apre"
When did DL taught "apre"?
Not like he would open a patio
My answer is identical to the solution, but it doesn't see it valid. :(
The hint says "he, she, it" but the answer says "you open the door"
It could be all four. The 'you' form would be the formal 'Lei apre'
How is it "He" opens the door? Where is the gender-specific indication?
There is none. It could be he or she. Or even 'it'. 'Apre la porta' alone doesn't tell us if it's he or she.
What is the breakdown of this verb? I'm confused because I saw before that it was
So what is the actual correct usage here?
Io apro, tu apri, lui/lei APRE, noi apriamo, voi APRITE, loro APRONO
(btw, this is one of the two standard conjugations of -ire verbs.... The other being -isc verbs like gestire, finire, capire - finisco, finisci etc)
Last time i did this it was Apri cause i had apre. Now its changed UGH!!!
Whats wrong with apri la pirta!
