Why does it have to be "The cat is eating the eggs" instead of "The cat eats the eggs" anyone know?
What's funny about Duolingo is that you can type an entire sentence without any spaces, and it will still accept it.
I do not think that it has to be "the cat is eating the eggs." that's weird, because i typed the cat eats the eggs.
The German language doesn't have a continuous aspect. Both options are correct.
The cat is eating the eggs or The cat eats the eggs//both correct but I think we do not use present continuous in German Language
The major hint here is the verb form following the noun "Katze". If it were plural the verb would have to be "fressen".
Animals Frissen, humans essen. If you write that humans fressen it means you insult them by saying they eat like animals.
Ich esse - I eat Der Hund frisst - The dog eats Der Junge frisst - The boy eats like an animal (insulting)
Die is for feminine nouns and plurals. Katze is a feminine verb. Katzen is the plural. This can also be figured out by the form of the verb that follows the "thing", in this case if there were multiple cats, the verb would be 'fressen'.
