sorprendió
As the verb in this sentence ends with the letters of 'ed' you know it is a past tense verb. The object or subject of the sentence is Sally’s elder sister. What pronoun can replace that? It would be she. Therefore, the Spanish past tense verb for 'she was surprised' is sorprendió. It is an ER verb.

The pronoun of 'he' has been given. Therefore, the Spanish past tense verb for 'he threw' is lanzó. It is an AR verb.

10.
She went to church and REPENTED her sins.
arrepente

arrepintió
arrepiente
Once again, as the verb in this sentence ends with the letters of 'ed' you know it is a past tense verb. The first and second answers appear to be present tense verbs but they are misspelled. Therefore, the first and second answers can be eliminated. The last answer is also a present tense verb that means he/she/you [singular formal]/ it repents. That is not the correct answer. The third answer is a past tense verb and it means 'she repented'. It is an IR verb.
