Muy bien, +Son of Africa... efectivamente, la opción (e) es la correcta... cuando el pronombre demostrativo señala algo que identificamos de manera específica (en este caso el sustantivo zapatillas -femenino y plural)... el pronombre debe concordar con ese sustantivo... de ahí que la forma correcta del pronombre sea esas -también femenino y plural...
Option (e) is the right one... when a demonstrative pronoun refers to something we are identifying specifically (in this case zapatillas -a feminine & plural noun)... the demonstrative pronoun needs to agree with that noun... hence the correct form of the pronoun is the feminine/ plural form esas ...

Muy bien, +Son of Africa... efectivamente, la opción (d) es la correcta... los ordinales (en este caso primero) como adjetivos deben concordar con el sustantivo al que acompañan... en este caso, el sustantivo es chicas (femenino y plural)... de ahí que la forma del ordinal sea primeras (también femenino y plural)...
Option (d) is the right one... ordinals (in this case primero) as adjectives must agree with the noun they qualify... in this case, that noun is chicas (feminine & plural)... hence, the required form of the ordinal is_'primeras_ (also feminine & plural)...

Story

Passion for all things Spanish.
Introduction
I am a teacher of Spanish as a foreign language. I was born and educated in Spain. I have been living in the UK for most of my adult life. As a child, I was brought up speaking Gallego and Spanish. I studied Latin and French at school. In my travels, I have learned to communicate in English, Portuguese, Italian and Catalan. I am passionate about languages. Online Spanish lessons have become my labour of love. Through my Love-Spanish.com blog and Love-Spanish Google+ page, I post free online Spanish lessons and tips on a daily basis.
