I cannot detect a substantial difference between " Which house is opposite yours " and "Which house is across from yours " ?
I reported "Which house is opposite yours" as "my answer should have been accepted".
"from yours" has a preposition, like "opposite to yours". They are trying to drive home the dative/preposition thing.
good point - Alles Klar
how do you know if ihrem is yours or hers?
see if 'i' is capitalized
Thank you babykage that is so helpful.
Why can you not say, " Which house is opposite you?"
It is because "Ihren" is possessive. "Which house is opposite to you" would translate to "Welches Haus ist Ihnen gegenüber" (I think).
"Which house is across the street from yours?" is apparently not accepted, I think it should be, since in "across from yours" it is implied that it is "across the street", right?
there might also be a house across the square, across the river, across the garden
One of the options is 'Which house is across from yours,' but 'Which house is yours across from,' which means exactly the same thing was rejected.
In English, we just say "opposite", the "to" is unnecessary.
"What house is yours compared with?" is incorrect, but "compared with" is included as an alternative for translation.
Is there any other way to say this? I can't understand it so I can't learn it. :/
