"A szegény országokban kevés új út van."

Translation:There are few new roads in poor countries.

Why not 'the poor countries'?


I think "the poor countries" is incorrect here. You wouldn't use the definite article in English in this context, even though it's the literal translation.

(But it's true that Duolingo is fairly inconsistent on whether it wants the literal or 'right' translation.)
