    2nd Form Lesson 25 - 3 worksheet questions

    Hi, I'm back again! For Lesson 25, here are some questions:

    1) Worksheet 2, present system passive endings for 3rd conjug, present tense -- answer for 1st P sing is "or" (correct) but shouldn't the rest be "eris itur imur imini untur" instead of "ris tur mur mini ntur" as listed?

    2) Worksheet 5, Drill D, #6 "It was being led" -- should the answer be "ducebatur" instead of "dicebatur" as listed?

    3) Worksheet 6, V.Translation Skills #4-5 -- should the sentences to translate use the word "ducuntur" and "ducunturne," respectively, instead of "ducitur" and "duciturne" ?

    Thanks!
    ~Lori

    Lori,

    Werlcome back : )

    1) You are correct.

    2) Yes.

    3) Populus is singular in Latin, and the verb has to agree in number with its subject, so dicitur and diciturne are correct. It's confusing because "people" sounds plural in English.

    Have a great day!
