Why is there no classifier "cai" need in the answer? "Mot cai cay tre" was not accepted.
Cay is the tree/plants classifier :-) Hope that helps!
Missing "One" in the correct answer.
Exactly, i was expecting "một" in tge answer
Its still pretty unclear to me and seems inconsistant. Một was not accepted, but in most all cases/examples một is needed if its says for example "a bamboo tree, verses " the bamboo tree".
I am struggling with the same thing. Usually the course insists on the "mot" but not in this instance. I find it inconsistent too.
Why is there no "một" needed ?
Uh there's a một in that answer. o_O Also you don't have to specify "một" in many cases where it's obvious like "tôi có con chó" (I have a dog), you don't have to say "một con chó".
Well, ...when i typed một it wasn't accepted... :( i was just confused.... But is there a Norm for when một is needed and when not ..or is just something u feel or have to memorise
It's to specify an amount (one particular something). Also if you want to say "one of my _" it's typically "một trong những _ (của) tôi" (literally one in _ of me).
Not in the multiple choice exercise.
Flagging yet another instance where the 'rule of thumb' about articles is not being consistently heeded by the course.
Is cây a classifier?
The correct choice is missing "một"
Why are people voting this down? Please explain why rocha92 is wrong rather than simply voting him down. I believe that he is correct.
