"They are not your pants."
Translation:Non sono i tuoi pantaloni.
Blech. It didn't accept my "Loro non sono i tuoi pantaloni." I reported it, but wasn't sure. I know we can omit the pronoun, but I like to keep it in just so I personally practice associating any given verb to its corresponding pronoun. I think that must be the only reason it's wrong- they're expecting me/us to omit the pronoun "loro."
The word "They" is incorrectly used according to the italian translation. The sentence is "They are not your pants"; for instance, the correct translation is "Loro non sono i suoi pantaloni". If you want the italian translation to be "Essi", you must write "Those are not your pants" instead.
I see lot's of folks asking the question why is "loro non sono i tuoi pantaloni" wrong? Well... me too! I see no definitive answer to that question, though. Is there a native some where who can clarify whether this is actually wrong or only Duolingo needing updating?
It seems the author of this question found it in some textbook which uses the essi pronoun. There are textbooks which use diferent personal pronouns of the 3 rd person of singular and plural: egli=lui; ella=lei; essi=loro. I found these differences in textbooks in my country but in italian textbooks or dictionaries as well. What is the correct usage of these different personal pronouns could tell us a native Italian speaker only. I think it could depends on region - egli, ella, essi = french influence (?). In any case I suppose my "Loro non sono i tuoi pantaloni." Is correct or an Italian will understand it at least.
Ci⠀(as a personal pronoun) = us. (not "they")
e.g., Ci vedono = They see us.
(With reflexive verbs it takes the meaning of "we",
but then it would be followed by siamo, not by sono.)
Ci⠀(as an adverb) = there.
Non ci sono i tuoi pantaloni = Not there are your pants.
Or in a more common order: Your pants are not (over) there.
This has a different meaning than "They are not your pants.".
loro is still only for people. see https://www.duolingo.com/skill/it/Basics-1/tips-and-notes
