"The cat likes the dog."

Translation:O gato gosta do cão.

In Portuguese, does De + o = the word "do"?


We haven't been taught about "do" at this point, but we're expected to know about it to get the question right.


Does "do" serve the same meaning as "de" does in other instances, but between living entities liking each other? I'm confused why "de" is not the correct answer since that's what we've always used with "gosta" up to this point, regardless of gender.
