Seems like it should take "That little animal is a rabbit. ". I reported it.

Is there any difference between tiu and tio , please? tiu = that and I also noticed tio = that Tio estas malfacila frazo. https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/27799128 :That is a difficult sentence.

Tio always stands alone. Tio estas malfacila frazo = that is a difficult sentence.

Tiu is a determiner. Tiu frazo estas malfacila = that sentence is difficult.

When you find tiu alone, there's an implied "one". Tiu estas malfacila frazo = that one is a difficult sentence.

I'm sorry, no I don't.

Maybe that will be a project for my yet-to-be-forthcoming textbook.
