Why was voudrais incorrect?


On the quiz, I was given Je ________ un jouet!  and put voudrais in the blank. It was marked incorrect and veux given as the correct answer. I though you could use either. Why was voudrais wrong?

Hi Melisa, 

I suppose the exclamation mark makes it more of a demand than a wish, so 'veux' would be correct.

Hope this helps!

Hmm, I took the exclamation mark as a mark of excitement at possibly getting a new game.

I had a similar quiz question, and the instructions said to translate the sentence, "I want a toy!" So veux would be correct in that instance.
