Abbiamo troppe domande.

abbiamo = we have, 1st person plural present tense of avere, "to have"

troppe = too many or too much, in this case describing a plural feminine noun

domande = questions. The singular is domanda, "question"

We have too many questions. Troppo can mean too much or too many, such as troppo lavoro to say, "too much work." Note that the adjective ending changes to describe the feminine singular (domanda - question), feminine plural (domande - questions), masculine singular (lavoro - work), or masculine plural (lavori - jobs).

This is the continuation of a mini project, where for the next few days, I will use the same basic word in multiple forms, eventually completing the table of present tense conjugations. This week, it is avere, "to have."
