    ¿estaba hambriento? = ¿ Tenía hambre?
    no tenía hambre = no estaba hambriento
    Estas frases se pueden aplicar a un "yo" o a un "el/ella"
    ej: Juan se comió todo - ¿ si? ¿ (él) estaba hambriento?
    ej: Juan , no comiste nada - es que ( yo) no tenía hambre

    Hi Yun:


    The two sentences mean exactly the opposite:

    • No tenía hambre → I was not hungry.


    I sincerely hope this helps you. Have a nice day!
    • Estaba hambriento → I was hungry.
