1. Which of the following is not a past tense form of the verb gustar?
[ ] gustaste
[x] gustáis
[ ] gustasteis

To find the correct answer you must know the verb’s conjugated endings. The first, third and last answers respectively mean you liked (singular familiar), you liked (plural familiar) and they/you (plural formal) liked. Each of these is the past tense form of the verb. The second answer means you like (plural familiar) in the present tense. Therefore, it is not the past tense verb form of gustar.
