There are cases where "how you say it" determines the meaning of the phrase, but in this case I think you mean "in what context" that you say it.

Yes, that was how I was interpreting it. But I think Alex is confusing "¡Eso!" with "por eso," which have different meanings. The former can indeed mean "exactly," when you are exclaiming that you agree with what the other person has just said or done, but I can't think of a context in which "por eso" would translate to "exactly." I'd be happy to be corrected by a native speaker.

You and James can argue it out. There are cases where "on the way you say it" determines the meaning of the phrase, but in this case I think you mean "in what context" that you say it.

Regardless of how you say it, it does not mean exactly, which would be precisamente.

http://www.spanishdict.com/reference/verbs

A verb takes different forms according to what the subject of the verb is. To conjugate is just to list the different forms that the verb takes with the different possible subjects. The form of the verb is also determined by mood and time. Follow the grammar link above and you'll see all the possible forms verbs take according to mood, time, and subject.

So what Mica was asking is with the subject "ella" what is the correct form of the verb? From clues given in the sentence we know that the time (or tense) of the verb is present and the mood of the verb is indicative.

By the way I'll translate itExactly, she trains every week, she runs 8 kilometers every day

Alex, "por eso" doesn't mean "exactly." It means, literally, "for that (reason)," and in this case it would be translated as "That's why..."

Yes, but the policy here is that the student must provide his/her answers first so that we may better explian why his/her choices were correct or not. In other words, you don't do his/her homework for him/her without teaching him/her anything. At least, you didn't conjugate them for him/her.

Mica,
To learn the proper conjugation enter those verbs on the conjuagation page or look up the verb on the dictionary page and they will be conjugated at the bottom of the page.
