    Let's start by translating the sentence, with the blank. "¿Qué te ________ tus amigos cuando te dieron el trofeo?" -" ____________ de ti." It means: "What did you friends _________ you when they gave you the trophey? "__________ of you." ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ So, in the first blank, we know we have to use the past tense. Because the English translation is obviously in the past tense. The first blank will use "dijeron," which means, "they said." In the second blank, we have to use the present tense, because we want to fill it in with exactly what the friends said, right at that very moment. So, we'd say, "estamos," which means "we are." and "orgullosos," which means "proud." ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Let's fill in the blanks: ¿Qué te dijeron tus amigos cuando te dieron el trofeo? — Estamos orgullosos de ti. It means: What did your friends tell you when they gave you the trophy? "We are proud of you." ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Now, I'd like to make a note here. This was a bit of a tricky question, because of the difference between saying "somos orgullosos," and "estamos orgullosos." They both mean "we are proud," but in totally different ways. "Ser orgulloso" means "to be a proud person," as in the personality trait. We can think of it as pride, with arrogance. "Estar orgulloso" means "to be proud," in the sense of FEELING proud.
