I'm confused. I thought that "мне" could be omitted when it was "give me" (as opposed to "give her", "give them", etc. Am I wrong? Could some knowledgeable person please enlighten me?

I'm pretty sure there are other sentences where omitting "мне" was accepted :(

I'm also really confused by this and would be most grateful for an explanation of the rules around this if anybody has one.

Why is 'дайте утку' wrong?

If it is Дай мне, can it also be Дайте мне?

I see Дайте мне as the best translation given at the top of this page, so I would assume so.

It didn't show up for me in the exercise itself, but I saw both Дай мне and Дайте. Thanks for clearing that up, Tigs. :)

This is what happens when I find your question from your stream and so get the discussion from outside the exercise. :-) You're welcome!

The "мне" is required? That's an unexpected pattern.
