"A cat is an animal."
Translation:Kot jest zwierzęciem.
With the new pick a word from the set of cards crown algorithm, "jest" is not an option.
Okay, so there is a bug that needs fixing! (luckily one can type the word, too.)
Not sure if that is an option. I will look for it next time I review. Thank you.
Can you provide a screenshot? It's really hard to imagine, as after all the basic sentence here is exactly "Kot jest zwierzęciem"...
Essentially kot, to and zwierzeciem are all selectable in the tabs, while 'jest' is not. So when I chose "kot to zwierzeciem" from the list, I received an error which indicated that I should have selected 'jest', but 'jest is not available to me. Does that make sense or clear as mud? (difficult for me to include accents btw - hope that doesn't trip you up)
It seems that the exercises are not necessary created on the base of the 'basic sentence' (the one that was put by the course creators in the first place), but just one of the starred answers. And the starred answers are "Kot jest zwierzęciem" and "Kot to zwierzę". If you can create one of those, then everything is correct.
But... how? That would be a major bug. If you see it again, can you make a screenshot, upload it on some image hosting website and link it here?
the rule is to use "instrumental case" after jest without to, and nominative case after "to", and "to jest".
masculine and neuter singular instrumental is ends usually with -em

Yes, "Kot to zwierzę" (Nominative) and "Kot jest zwierzęciem" (Instrumental).
Thank you. In a formal conversation or speaking with somebody that I've never met before, which one is better to use or it doesn't matter?
I think the Instrumental version is more... elegant, but there's nothing wrong with the Nominative one and I wouldn't really think about them in terms of formality.
The sentence has two equally good answers: "Kot jest zwierzęciem" and "Kot to zwierzę". If there was no 'jest', then it means the app wanted you to create the second answer.
the word jest is missing here too. I just came back to duolingo but Im discouraged again. I give up.
Why does the tts pronounces "kot" with a "d" at the end? It's supposed to be a clear "t".
