    Well, "cedere" means to yield, so "cedunt," which is the third plural in the present indicative means "They yield".  "Cedebant" is the third person plural in the imperfect indicative, so it means "they used to yield" or "they were yielding".

    You need to understand what each tense and mood represents in order to translate correctly.  If you don't, you can't do this exercise.  Go back to your textbook and study it for this information.  And look at the conjugation table below:
