Der Präsident hat gestern Abend eine … gehalten.

Rede

Correct Answer: 
Yes

Sprache

Correct Answer: 
No

Nachricht

Correct Answer: 
No

Erklärung

Correct Answer: 
No

Yesterday evening the president gave a speech (A). The expression “to give a speech” is rendered idiomatically by eine Rede halten. It does not make sense to say that the president gave a language (B) yesterday evening, and it is much more likely that the president gave a speech than a message (C) or an explanation (D).
