"Your sisters are going to my father's restaurant."
Translation:Deine Schwestern gehen ins Restaurant meines Vaters.
uhmm since when we know Genitiv? there are too many things to remember to get this sentence correct!
Genitiv isnt so bad. Just rember "des der des der" for "der die das die" for the articles.
Nouns in genitiv usually get an -s or -es suffix (though some are irregular).
The modified article + word order will then indicate possesion like "of a (eines/r)", " of the (des/r)", "of his (seines/r)", etc.
So "Restaurants meines Vaters" == restaurant of my father('s) == my father's restaurant.
In a lot of cases you can just put the 3rd noun ahead of the 1st and tack on an 's to make sense of it in English.
i wrote "zu" instead of "ins". why is "zu" incorrect? i thought "gehen zu" means "go to". what is wrong with my logic?
Right: Deine Schwestern gehen ins Restaurant meines Vaters!!! not Deine Schwestern gehen ins Restaurant meinem Vaters
It says the correct solution is "Deine Schwestern gehen ins Restaurant meines Vaters." but isn't 'Vaters' plural? Even if I had two fathers somehow, the English version is about one father.
