Hello! I think the word your looking for might be "estuvo",from esta,estaba

Yes, I would agree about the subjunctive. It is just a statement of facts (in the professor's point of view).

Hi Sandy
I think you should have tried to do it yourself first and then ask whether it is correct. You will learn nothing by getting someone else to do your home work.

  • That's my opinion...they all appear to be ser apart from his being content to live in Hawaii.

Also, although quoting someone else (the teacher) as the text does, i don't believe this causes any subjunctive mood.
