Use of pronouns!

Hello! Just wondering why it is correct to say

Das Mädchen zählt Äpfel Die Frau zählt die Blumen

-- would it also be proper to say Das Mädchen zählt die Äpfel?? Thanks!

These are actually articles and not pronouns:

  • Das Mädchen zählt Äpfel → The girl is counting apples
  • Das Mädchen zählt die Äpfel → The girl is counting the apples

Naturally you could also say «die Frau zählt Blumen» for “the woman is counting flowers”.


thanks a lot :)
