Solution:

1.   Ein rotes Haus. (A red house.) 

> The right answer is rotes“. The adjective gets the ending “-es”, because the adjective is preceded by the indefinite article "ein" and it is followed by a neuter gender noun "das Haus".

2.   Das schwarze Auto. (The black car.) 

> The right answer is schwarze“, because the adjectives preceded by a definite article (der, die, das) get the ending „-e“ at singular number.

3.   Grünes Gras. (Green grass.) 

> The right answer is grünes“, because the adjective is placed before the noun and it is not preceded by an article (der, die, das), this way the adjective gets the ending “-es” because the noun ("das Gras") is of neuter gender.

4.   Der Himmel ist blau. (The sky is blue.) 

> The right answer is  „blau“ because all the adjectives placed after the noun don't change their shape (they don't get any endings).

5.   Eine schöne Frau. (A beautiful woman.) 

> The right answer is schöne” because the adjective is preceded by the indefinite article "eine" and it is followed by a feminine gender noun "die Frau".

6.   Der gute Lehrer. (The good teacher.) 

> The right answer is gute“, because the adjectives preceded by a definite article (der, die, das) get the ending „-e“ at singular number.

7.   Die athletische Sportlerin. (The athletic sportgirl.) 

> The right answer is athletische“, because the adjectives preceded by a definite article (der, die, das) get the ending „-e“ at singular number.

8.   Schmutziges Wasser. (Dirty water.) 

> The right answer is schmutziges“, because the adjective is placed before the noun and it is not preceded by an article (der, die, das), this way the adjective gets the ending “-es” because the noun ("das Wasser") is of neuter gender.

9.   Das scharfe Messer. (The sharp knife.) 

> The right answer is scharfe“, because the adjectives preceded by a definite article (der, die, das) get the ending „-e“ at singular number.

10.   Ein hübsches Mädchen. (A cute girl.)

> The right answer is “hübsches”. The adjective gets the ending “-es”, because it is preceded by an indefinite article "ein" and it is followed by a neuter gender noun „das Mädchen“

11.   Die guten Zeiten. (The good times.)
> The right answer is guten“. Adjectives which are preceded by the article "die" (plural) will get the ending “-en”.
