Exercises with 'ser' and 'estar'

This was already lots of new stuff, which you had to learn here. Therefore, we would like to take a little time to repeat and deepen a little the already known grammar through some exercises. Exercises within our lessons are always labeled with the word "Exercise". Our exercises work as follows: You should always first find a correct answer to each question in your mind and only then move the mouse over the answer-buttons (). If you do so, we will show a correct answer to you.

Exercise
Put into the following Portuguese sentences the correct forms of the verb 'ser' (to be). As you know, the conjugations of 'ser' are dependent on the person and the number (plural or singular).
