When do numbers come before the noun and when do they come after?


One is the only number that comes after


What is the difference between עגבניה and עגבנייה?


They're the same word. The norms of spelling, when writing without nikkud, change over time, and also there are slight differences that are due to personal taste. Some people like to write it this way, some prefer the other. I think I mostly see עגבניה but maybe not everyone will agree.


It's really not correct to test for such spelling norms at this level of learning. This question should be removed.


Well potato potato. We're going to see both anyways.


Is עגבניה masculine? I thought it was feminine this whole time


It's feminine, he's not referring to male as in masculine or the opposite of female. Instead he's referring to a Hebrew term for writing diacritics: https://www.hebrewpod101.com/lesson/absolute-beginner-questions-answered-by-your-hebrew-teacher-4-niqqud-vs-ktiv-male/


After Even Shoshan it is either עגבנייה in Ktiv male, where consonantal ו ([v]) and י ([j]) are doubled in the middle of words, or with Nikkud: עַגְבָנִיָּה. Thus the above solution is treif. What do you from Duolingo say to this?


Why are these sentences backwards?


Tuffyboy: They are backwards usually when you're in mobile view. Make sure your browser is in desktop view/ mode. This will also allow you to see the other duolingo features like discussions & timed practice. (From discussions you can search for all the discussions in this course; like this one you're reading now, as well as see general duolingo discussions). If you can't see discussions on the main screen - once logged into duolingo, you're not in desktop view.

If they are still backwards, switch your browser or use the app.
