Select an Answer

The present subjunctive passive of capitis is

capiāminī

Correct Answer: 
Yes

capiēminī

Correct Answer: 
No

caperēminī

Correct Answer: 
No

capiminī

Correct Answer: 
No

Capitis is the second person plural present indicative active form of the third conjugation i-stem verb capiō. The second person plural present subjunctive passive of this verb is formed by adding the present subjunctive marker -ā- and then the second person plural passive ending -minī to the stem capi-. The correct answer is therefore choice (A), capiāminī. Choice (B), capiēminī, is the future indicative form; choice (C), caperēminī, is the imperfect subjunctive form; and choice (D), capiminī, is the present indicative form.
