I'm not quite sure what the instructions on my Persian (Farsi) homework mean.


They say : حالا به پرسش ها ی زیر پاسخ بده I understand everything except the last word, بده. If someone could help me figure out what I'm supposed to do, that would be really helpful.

Just so you know what the rest of the exercise is like, the first question says:
فرهنگ لغت چیست؟

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Amy.

    "پاسخ بده" is imperative mood it means "answer!" not "to answer" [to answer = پاسخ دادن Which is infinitive].
    "پاسخ" means answer(noun) but "پاسخ بده" means answer(verb). "بده" means "give", so "پاسخ بده" = "give answer". That is better to say "answer".

    So," حالا به پرسش ها ی زیر پاسخ بده" means "Now answer to the following questions".

    If anything is not clear, then tell me, I'd like to explain it. ^^

    my friend dont make mistake the verb here is " پاسخ بده " not " بده " itself . we called them فعل مرکب
    and the verb " پاسخ بده " mean answer
    but let me tell u more a bout it in persian

    ما 3 نوع فعل داریم
    1 ساده
    2 پیشوندی
    راه تشخیص فعل مرکب از فعل ساده آسان است
    یکی از اون راه ها این هست که فعل فعل مرکب قابل گسترش نیست و اگرفعلي گسترش پذیر باشد دیگه مرکب نیست
    مثال :
    او در را باز کرد " فعل کرد. نه باز کرد و فعل ساده است "
    او تکالیفش را انجام داد" . فعل انجام داد نه داد به تنهایی پس فعل مرکب است

    tell me if u dont get or if u need more information about it
