I wrote חנויות רבות instead of the ubiquitous הרבה. DL rejected it_can anyone explain why.

What you wrote is correct. However, forms like רבות are quite formal and הרבה is much more common and this course goes for the less formal language. Yes, there are examples where it is also used, but I guess it's done mostly so we get in touch with bith formal and informal language, but informal is still preferred.

מדוע אי אפשר להישתמש ב ישנם בשביל יש?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/danny912421

כי חנות היא נקבה, אז יש לכתוב ישנן, לא ישנם. אבל, הבעיה היא שלא משתמשים בשפה פורמלית בקורס הזה.
