How is "pantaloni sono arancione" correct? it says both arancione and arancioni are correct. I understand the plural form but not why the singular form is correct?!?
The colours ending with a letter "e" such as arancionE , can change their form in plural to arancioni, but is not mandatory
My question exactly!
Her pants are orange. Correct translations:
I suoi pantaloni sono arancione./I suoi pantaloni sono arancioni.
I don´t get it. Why does "arancioni" AND "arancione" work? It´s a masc plural noun!
Why did Duolingo translate pants as MUTANDE?
What's the deal with the color "orange"? Isn't it neutral? If so, why is "arancio" correct but not "arancia"? Thoughts?
"I suo pantaloni sono arangione". Is that right? Isn't that supposed to be "suoi"?
Yeah it is suoi, since pantaloni are plural. However, aranCione is with a C not a G.
can you please explain "suoi" as opposed to "sue"?
'Suoi' is the masculine plural form of the possessive 3rd person. "sue" is feminine plural. and "pantaloni" is masculine plural so that's why it's "i suoi pantaloni".
But I used "suoi" even though the original sentence referred to "her" , and it accepted it. Does the masculine version work for bofh genders?
As far as i know, suoi can be used for both her and his. The masculine form suoi is used as the word pantaloni is masculine, which has nothing to do with the gender of the one who possesses it.
Ah yes that makes so much sense. Thank you!
Why "I" pantaloni instead of "Le" pantaloni?
pantaloni is masculine, so its "i"
