This question is making me so angry. I initially answer with:
"She drinks even though I eat" (Which is right as far as I am concerned)
And it corrects me and tells me the most correct answer is:
"She drinks, meanwhile I eat" (Which is stupid, but okay then...)
So the next time this question comes around I answer it as above and what do you know, it is * wrong, with the top correction:
"She drinks while i eat"
I'll bet good money that next time I come across this question it will say I am wrong again and probably tell me my first answer is correct this time.
Please have a look at this page:
"alors que" is a conjunctive locution.
"que" can be:
- a conjunction: "Je sais que tu es là." translates to "I know that you are here".
- an adverb: "Que tu es belle !" translates to "You are so beautiful!"
- a relative pronoun: "C'est le garçon que je connais." translates to "This is the boy that I know."
- an interrogative pronoun: "Que veux-tu ?" translates ot "What do you want?"
