    Regarding #13 aquarum, I think it is genitive singular but the answers sheet says it is genitive plural. My chart does not have um marked on the plural side so is it plural or singular?

    Another question, #4 toga and togae it says on the answer sheet that they are nominative/vocative and ablative singular. I understand how they can be nominative and ablative but I don’t understand how it can be vocative because vocative is used to call people but you can’t call a toga or togae can you?

    @ronald.gibson For #13, the correct answer is genitive plural because the ending is actually arum, not just um. As you can see, arum would be genitive plural on the feminine chart.

    For your other question, you are correct that you wouldn’t call a toga—people don’t usually call inanimate objects! However, think about a fantasy story, where there is a magical toga. Maybe you might need to call the toga in that scenario! 🙂 That said, this is simply a practice to help you get more familiar with recognizing noun endings, so this isn’t extremely important.

    I hope this helps!
