11.4 - Ydw/ Nad ydw

As in the Present Tense, the replies to an 'Ydych?' or an 'Wyt?' question are always:

Ydw - Yes
Nac ydw - No

Ydych chi wedi prynu anrheg i Bob? - Ydw.
- Have you bought a present for Bob? - Yes.

Wyt ti wedi anfon cardiau? - Nac ydw.
- Have you sent cards? - No.

Now ask an imaginary friend the following (using the familiar form). Find out whether he / she has:

1. bought a present for Mary
2. posted a parcel
3. sent cards
4. posted a card

Now ask the same questions of a stranger.
