Is this sentence in the PRESENT tense or the PAST tense? Without separate lessons in verb declensions it is difficult to know from the construction which applies. If it is an historic statement then the correct translation has to be that the lion ATE the steak. If that is the case, then to mark that translation as incorrect is in itself incorrect. Still, there appears to be little if any hope of D/L taking any notice of this comment, but maybe someone else can elucidate me.
