Voltear, aunque se entiende, no se usa en España. Preferimos decir "dar la vuelta".

No deis la vuelta a la hoja del examen hasta que suene el timbre.

Hola
¿Por qué es "lo que" (¿el pronombre relativo?) en la frase? La hoja es femenino, ¿o se usa "lo" describer el "voltear" lo que llama por el nueter "lo"

Lo siento, tuve mucho difícil para la ecriber la oración Espero que no haya equivocaciones sencillas las que son más fácil para evitarlas (that are easier to avoid)

Why is "lo que" used? "la hoja" is feminine, or is lo used because it describes the actual action of "turning" which would call for the nueter "(lo) que"

Muchas gracias

If it's hard for you to say then this word Virar is hardest to you mention

"Lo que" se refiere al contenido que está escrito detrás de la hoja, no a la hoja:

Voltee la hoja para leer "la cosa" (lo) que está escrita detrás.
