"He is inside the cake."
Translation:הוא בתוך העוגה.
What's the difference between בפנים ובחוץ. I keep on getting told I'm putting the wrong answer when they're the same word
The word בתוך is "inside" as a preposition, so it must be followed by a noun. בפנים is "inside" used as an adverb. Examples:
- I am inside the house. - אני בתוך הבית
- I am sitting inside. - אני יושב בפנים
For "outside" you have the preposition -מחוץ ל and the adverb בחוץ.
