This is an exercise in the use of the imperative and prohibitive grammatical "moods."  The model sentences are in the indicative mood, in which a sentence is a simple statement. The statement can be either positive (Nous avons de la patience) or negative (Tu ne vas pas au cinéma). The student is asked to turn the positive indicatives into imperatives and the negatives into prohibitives.

The only wrong answer is 3. We cannot write this story has been turned into Let's not believe this story.

I leave it to you to correct that (also the spelling of histoire).

Thanks a million

Oh, 7 should be Ne vas pas au cinéma.

The verb was right. In the imperative tense, the "s" of the second person disappears. But it is "au", and not "du" cinéma.

Just a little correction : There isn't any "s" to "Ne va pas au cinéma !" and always a "!" at the end of these sentences ;-) Bises à toi, Stu !

Bises à toi, Cath!
