So even if after the number 3 we should use the genitive singular, this does not apply to adjectives?
три - numeral in the accusative but
больших - adjective in the genetive plural
дивана - noun in the genitive case singular
Are you sure? I thought that the genitive plural of диван would be диванов.
Thank you. I fixed above.
When combined with numerals два /two/, три /three/, четыре /four/ nouns receive a form of the genitive singular (два стола -masculine- /two desks/ and три двери - female- /three doors/),
and when combined with numeral пять /five/, шесть /six/, etc. nouns get a form the genitive plural (пять столов /five tables/, шесть дверей /six doors/).
Ok, thanks! So my question was whether adjectives also received the genitive singular with два, три and четыре, or if the receive the genitive plural because they are plural.
Being Russian myself, I sometimes ask myself, really, why is it "Три больших дивана" instead of "3 больших диванов"? Actually, if you are a foreigner this is not going to be a big error if you say "3 больших диванов" instead of "3 больших дивана" because we (native Russians), also can allow those mistakes, especially those Russians who left or were dropped from their schools (knowing less about the Russian language). I would say, an English speaking person doesn't need to dig that deep into the Russian words' endings, just follow the base rules as far as you are not going to be using Russian for your business or something really valuable
Nobody going to point out the fact it's a guy narrating the audio even though it's купила hahaha
Absolutely right, we don't have equal rights for both man and woman, our women are not allowed to fight for their rights and guys who consider themselves ladies are divergent and out of society
if the correct solutions have a typo, just report it. it should be big sofas
The mobile version didn't have 'three' as an option, thus the question was impossible to answer correctly
