How much does…cost?
¿Cuánto cuesta el maíz?
¿Cuánta cuesta la lechuga?
¿Cuántos cuestan los
pepinos?
¿Cuántas cuestan las
papas?
*Remember that similar to an adjective, cuánto needs to agree (in number and in
gender) with the noun that it is describing.
*Another item to remember – COSTAR is an irregular verb. It has a stem-change. The
O changes to UE in all forms but nosotros and vosotros. It is important that verbs are
congjugated to match the subject. In this case, the subject is the vegetable. Use the
“él/ella” form for singular nouns and the “ellos/ellas” form for plural nouns.
