Can "Det er hardt å velge" be an alternative for this sentence?
Intuitively it doesn't sound like good Norwegian, but it wouldn't surprise me to hear someone say it either (it is, in fact, allowed).
I tried to write 'vanskelig' and my phone autocorrected to 'candlelight'! :)
Why does there need to be an e at the end of "velge"? Why not just "velg" in this sentence?
Because the infinitive form of the verb is "å velge", while "velg" is the imperative.
Is å bestemme acceptable too?
No, bestemme would come out as "it is hard to make decisions"
