"The fish is on the table."
Translation:Рыба — на столе.
I think it's because the emphasis is on the table, not the fish.
Где рыба? (Where is the fish?)
Рыба — на столе. (The fish is on the table.)
Что лежит на столе? (What lies on the table?)
На столе лежит рыба. (On the table, lies a fish.)
(Or maybe it's the other way around.)
Thanks for your reply, Ivaristal. However, I am using a Mac computer, and I just don't see the Aa-Яя at all, anywhere or anytime. Apparently there is some programming that Duolingo has not done that would suit the Mac or the Safari browser. I will try using Firefox next lesson time. If it works, I will post it. UPDATE: I did try Firefox just now, and there is still no Aa-Яя.
