Attributively used adjectives usually take the ending -e. That is the case here, too.

When the noun remains unmentioned or is replaced by ‘ien’, the adjective usually takes the -en ending.

#6. Translate into Frisian: my old grandfather

Attributively used adjectives usually take the ending -e. That is the case here, too.
Notice that ‘myn âlde pake’ is not necessarily wrong, but in Frisian it is more common to use the plural form of the possessive pronoun with family members.
Also notice that ‘âlde pake’ may be both ‘old grandfather’ and ‘greatgrandfather’ (so: your parent’s grandfather).

#7. Translate into Frisian: a girl in love

‘Fereale’ already ends in -e, so no extra -e is added.

#8. Translate into Frisian: salty beer

‘Beer’ has the it-gender. Because there is no determiner, the adjective remains uninflected.

#9. Translate into Frisian: being curious

‘Curious’ is ‘nijsgjirrich’. The adjective is used predicatively here (not right before the noun it belongs to), so it remains uninflected.
Notice the different word orders in English and Frisian: the uninflected verb comes at the end in Frisian.
Also notice that ‘nijsgjirrich’ also means ‘interesting’. The Frisian phrase is therefore ambiguous.

Attributively used adjectives usually take the ending -e. That is the case here, too.
