siete sobre ocho Emotion: smile
Wow, 8 out of 8! I didn't really expect that of myself. Emotion: surprise
Just a quick question - I thought "Es" was the conjugation of Estar when referring to something permanent and "Está" was to refer to something non'permanent? In ths case, why is number 2 in the test above Está?
I'll probably sound like a nerd Emotion: geeked but my textbook says that, talking about the location of men, geographic objects (addresses), and the location of other things, we should use "estar".

I didn't get it at first either, but now I realize it's correct and logical: an address of an office (restaurant, bank, etc) can change, and also the capital of a county can be changed, too. Hence, these things are not really permanent, and we should use "estar".

Talking about #2 specifically, I think it's "estar" because the city can be renamed, or the name "Madrid" can be assigned to another town, etc. So it's not a permanent condition, even though these "manipulations" are not likely to happen.
Hmm, but it talks about the location of the city which I would assume to be permanent Emotion: smile But I see what you mean regarding the name etc. Thanks for your quick response Emotion: smile
funkcannait talks about the location of the city which I would assume to be permanent
Yep, I had the same doubt at first, but now I've just memorized that locations of geographic objects are always described with "estar". Emotion: smile
Thanks for that - ill remember that too Emotion: smile
