What is the right way to say: They ran out of money?
I'm doing an e-worksheet for Spanish homework. I'm supposed to put the right words in the blanks and I can't figure it out. The program keeps saying I'm wrong, but won't tell me the right way to say the answer. I'm supposed to be translating the following sentence into Spanish: They ran out of money. I have the right construction, according to the e-worksheet: Se les ___________________ el dinero. What verb should I be using here? I've tried perder, quedar, gastar... What works?
Se les ___________________ el dinero.
run out of Verb:
quedarse sin, acabarse, agotarse, quedar sin, terminarse, consumirse; Synonyms: be out of, lack, be left without, go short of, go short on, have no I ran out of gas, Se me acabó la gasolina.
[ + ] Quips, Quotes & Proverbs
salirse de; Synonyms: get out of, get off, get outside, spin out of, step out of hacer salir de La plaga los hizo salir del lugar, The plague ran them out of the place.
acabó would work here
Wouldn't it be "acabaron" ?
