I have just been marked wrong for putting "she has a cat" The answer duolingo gave is "she's a cat" ???
Anybody else think it was "Hunden har en katt"? Please tell me I'm not alone...
Actually came to the comments to see if anyone else had this problem. Well, I guess it sounded more like "hund har en katt" to me. I listened multiple times and couldn't hear anything else.
I have a question, the correct answer to this sentence has two English answers with totally different meanings, do you use the Swedish sentence for both?
Which two ones?
It said the correct answers were 'She's a cat' and 'She has a cat' and for me she's a cat means she is a cat. ?
Usually, contractions are created automatically. Thus, "she has" and "she's" might be considered correct. But you're right that they shouldn't be. This sentence only means "she has a cat".
Okay, so, "She is a cat," isn't correct but, "She's a cat," is despite that She + is =She's
The contractions are generated automatically, so sometimes they're created where they shouldn't be.
Again my question was half English ???
