"Tu pato bebe agua."
Translation:Your duck drinks water.
Tu is for 'your' (tu gato - your cat) and tú is for 'you' (tú bebes - you drink).
As far as I've been able to understand, there is no difference in their pronunciations.
But you can tell which by context, like if the following word is a noun (your, tu) or verb (you, tú)

Several times I have put the right answer into the field but your system does not recognize it.
Like if you looked at it's possible translations and put one other than the first one as your answer?

All living things have to obtain water through some sort of source. P.S. Koala bears don't actually drink water... they lick the dew off of eucalypactas (dont know how it's spelled) leaves. They also ONLY eat eucalypactas leaves.
Do you mean the spanish verb conjugations? Or just the english verb conjugations? Because they don't directly translate. It depends on who is doing the action, for example "to drink"- I drink, you drink, he/she drinkS, they drink. Or "to be"- I aM, you aRE, he/she IS, they aRE. It's just something you remember or learn to figure out.
I sometimes feel duolingo's founders and creators are a bunch of gringos making an app out of a spanish book.
I think the difference between "tu" and "tú" is definitely how you pronounce them both. "Tu" is exactly how it looks; whereas, "tú" has more of a "Ooooo" sound on the "u". If that makes sense?
I accidently put ducks instead of duck and they marked it wrong. How stupid is that?
Donald Duck drinks orange juice, counting that he has his own brand of orange juice! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
I swear it said their potato drinks water for a minute, and I was like "what in the world?"
Your duck is drinking water. Accepted.
