Translation:הכלב אוכל.

The word הכלב was not available in the choices, only הכלבה.

Which is extremely anoying because they dont specify male or female.

So the way this chat has it posted is the way i wrote it. They marked me wrong because the answer was supposed to be female and they didnt tell anyone that. Or at least not me anyways.

is it because a dog can be female? i don't understand

No, אוכל is the male form. A female dog would be כלבה and she would be אוכלת.

What do you mean "no"? When you answer exactly that, that is a female dog and so a feminine verb form. ))

So... I just got to tick the correct answers for "The dog eats". I chose "הכלב אוכל" and was wrong because "הכלבה אוכלת" is right too and went too look up the discussion. First it said, there were 7 comments in the discussion, but once I was there, it seemed like I was the first one to comment. Only after I pressed enter, I could see all the other comments. It seems like there's a bug you could fix! Now concerning the examples: I guess the second option I should have ticked is about a female eating dog. We didn't learn this so far (I am still learning letters), so Duo is being a bit too strict for my taste, maybe you could tell him to be a bit gentler? Thanks!

Only had the feminine version of the sentence available to choose from. It said I got it incorrect because it wasn't the masculine version??????
