"Do you know where America is located?" Surely this ought to be correct as well.
Yes, it is correct. Added it.
But it is ok just to say Ты знаешь, где Америка? right? I know we're practising находится, I'm just checking
I've been asking myself the same thing lately.
DL did not accept "Do you know where America lies?" Odd.
Amerika lies everywhere, comrade, all the time.
I also wrote "lies" as in "to lay". I wonder if this can be counted as correct English...? I guess I want to say it like this because in German we also say "liegen" for this kind of sentences.
"Где находится Москва?" / "Wo liegt Moskau?"
"Lies" is not a form of "to lay", but rather "to lie".
Not that odd, considering that the English verb "lie" isn't used in this sense anywhere near as often as the Russian "находиться".
"Do you know where America is situated?" doesn't count?
In a handbasket, mate. In a handbasket. And the bottom's getting hot.
What about "Do you know where is America situated?" as the suggested translation for находится is (situated).
It's fine if you change the word order. It has to be "Do you know where America is situated?".
Is it wrong to type "Ты знаешь, где Америка?"
No, that's fine too.
do you know where is america located was marked as wrong....:(
And rightly so – the word order is incorrect. It should be "Do you know where America is located?"
Do you know where America is found?
It feels so wrong being forced to end a sentence in a preposition
"Do you know, where America is located"? Please explain why this isn't correct.
Oh no, they're gonna nuke it!
Is there ever a situation in which "находится" is absolutely needed? In this example, it is not.
