"I have a tomato and an apple."
Translation:Io ho un pomodoro ed una mela.
I am in need of more guidance from duolinguo with regard to 'e' and 'ed'. At first I guessed that ed was used before a word that began with a vowel, but 'ed il cane' was marked wrong. Then I thought perhaps 'ed' was only used in front of a word beginning with another e, but now both e and ed are accepted in this example before a word beginning with u. I'm very confused.
Yes, I have found it very confusing as well. So far, I have been using "ed" when followed by a vowel or vowel sound. It hasn't marked me wrong yet. You just have to be careful on the "Write what you hear." From what I read on other discussions, either should work. Does anyone more skilled in Italian have better information on this?
