Why it suggests "the west" and then counts it as a mistake?
Hints are shared for sentences using the same word. So just because a hint is suggesting a word does not mean it's correct.
but why is using "the west" wrong?
Sorry for asking, but, what does that mean? That something lies outside the capital, to the West? Or it means the West side of the capital city? Tusen takk!
West, outside the capital.
The west side of the city would be 'vestkanten'.
Is that a reference to the city of Bergen?
Would it also be acceptable to use "av" instead of "for"? Norwegian prepositions sure confuse me! Takk!
No, it's always "for" in this context.
Why is it hovedstaden instead of hovedbyen?
