"He disowned it" did not work even though that was the first definition given.
So when do we know which definition is right to use? There are 3 !
I guessed we have to pick one and hope it is the correct one. If not, we check the discussions or report the definitions.
You can't just guess just guess one. It all depends on context. Even though it could be any of those alone, that is what it is for this sentance.
it should be correct...you can always report it and say "please add this definition"
I can reject your answer. But I cannot deny it.
I can deny being at the hotel last night. But I cannot reject it.
I'm guessing it's similar for the Spanish equivalents.
I also don't see "negar" as having a translation of "reject", nor do I see the translation of "reject" as including "negar", at least on Spanishdict.com.
"Denied" is like "he" is blocking/preventing/not acknowledging something(it). For example he could be a soccer goalie and blocked a score. "He" could be stating something(it) is not true. "Rejected" could be a bit like "denied" I suppose. But I think discard/do not accept/ do not like, more for "rejected".
I wish we would learn what the verbs are before we have to learn the past tense of them. Ive seen at least half a dozen new verbs this section :(
Agreed. They really should have had a couple lessons before this one with new verbs OR strictly used already familiar verbs for this lesson.
I translate it as "he doubted it" and it was marked wrong. Why is that? When I learned negar in school one of the definitions was to doubt, though I understand dudar more directly translates to that.
Denying is this.. It did not happen. Rejecting is this.. I won't believe that . Doubting is this.. I don't think that's what happened.
"He negated it" also wrong? ... I thought that's where the word "negated" came from.
The definition of this sentence was ( He denied it) but when I pressed ( Él lo negó) it only said ( He denied) so etheir this here is wrong or I did not see 'it'.
i put disowned and it counted me wrong. that was the first definition given. why is disowned counted wrong??
I love how people have marked you down with out correcting your error. The reason is because there is no "no" in the sentence to make it "He did not" so therefore it is just "He denied it"
I read "❤❤❤❤❤" instead if "nego" at first. That was very confusing. (This was my first encounter with "nego".)
Is it just me, or are there some speaking exercises that are incredibly difficult to get the recording to recognize the speech? I had to say the sentence like 6 times, incredibly slow and over-enunciated in order for it to recognize my voice answer.
It's a very tricky sentence, because "lo" can be something or someone... (it or him).
