"I am a man and she is a woman."
Translation:Io sono un uomo e lei è una donna.
I have read many commenst on the use of ed and e. Some say ed when vowel is the first letter of next word and some say it does not matter. I still am not sure what is correct (or when). It occurred to me maybe duolingo is trying to emphasize the difference of e (and) and (is) ((sorry my computer does not have accent marks)). Don't really know / just a thought.
