Duolingo's use of מספר for few, or a number of is very uncommon in my experience. The more accepted word would be כמה
It's correct though, מספר מזלגות. Just a bit outdated.
How do you pronounce מזלגות?
What kind of word is צריך?
Well, צָרִיךְ is an adjective "needful, necessary" used in a slot where you would expect a modal verb.
Very helpful. I thought it was a verb, this confused by the ה at the end...
Are the words reversed for anyone else?
Yes, the words are displayed in the wrong order. From left to right. What's the reason?
