Firstly, meist here is an adverb. You might be thinking why a noun placed in front of an adverb. Actually, there are 2 types of nouns, which are pronouns and nouns. Nouns are located after adverbs (t-m-p) while pronouns are located after the conjugated verb.
There's no rage here. I rather think you missed watay's point.
Duolingo's hints, just like any dictionary lookup, will give you various correct translations for a particular word. Since languages don't match perfectly, some translations will be valid in some instances and others in other instances. The task for the learner is to figure out which are correct for which situation. (Edit: This is just as much true in an offline learning situation with a teacher and a dictionary.)
If Duolingo would award you with points for incorrect choices of words for a particular sentence, it would cheat you by teaching you incorrect German. Why would you want that?
And I was explaining why your suggestion was impractical in my opinion.
If you want to have a discussion with a particular user, you can write on their streams -- sentence discussions are not private so you can't really pick and choose who comments on your posts.
(I can't understand where you see the "extreme rage" you write about, but that's OK.)
I doubt you would hear most English speakers say She drinks most tea. They would indeed wonder which of the following you meant:
Does she drink the larger part of the tea available? She drinks most OF THE tea. or She drinks THE most tea.
"What kinds of tea does she drink? Hot, cold, sweet, bitter? Is she picky?" "Nah she's not picky. She drinks mostLY tea."
Does she drink just about any variety of tea available? She drinks most teaS.
Dec 28, 2016 - "She drinks for the most part of tea" The basic sentence is "She drinks tea" You would not use OF in the basic sentence - "She drinks OF tea" NO! Incorrect! :-D
"For the most part" is an adverb phrase that modifies DRINKS. It is similar to "She quickly drinks tea", in which QUICKLY is an adverb that modifies DRINKS. Replace QUICKLY with FOR THE MOST PART, and you have the correct sentence.
As a minor detail, the placement of the adverb phrase (FOR THE MOST PART) in front of the verb is okay, and will be used that way sometimes. However, English speakers will tend to put those adverb phrases at the end of the sentence. "She drinks tea for the most part."
As for the adverb QUICKLY, there is a slight difference in the meanings of the sentences "She quickly drinks tea" and "She drinks tea quickly". Don't worry about it for now, though, as this is a very minor detail.
Happy New Year!
I do understand "for the most part" but as a native uk english speaker i would not normally use it unless i was trying to act posh. In normal everyday language I would say "she mostly drinks tea" "she usually she drinks tea" "she generally she drinks tea" or even "she mainly drinks tea".
"She drinks most tea" makes no sense to me. If I wanted to say she drinks most types of tea" then that is exactly what i would say.
