It just me or this one was a bit too much difficult for this level?

yes I think this one is an intruder from level 345

Yes! First one I've had to just give up an hit enter on, as I had NO idea what duolingo was looking for.

Rather a bit. All of the words are there, but the meaning is just skewed enough from a direct English translation to cram a wrench in the works.

How would you say "Lots of things don't see one" ?


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

I think the verb would be conjugated for the plural ("lots of things" is plural) rather than singular. So "Vieles sehen man nicht." ? I'm no expert though.

'Mann' is doing the seeing though, not 'vieles'

hmm... where the hack is "zu" coming from?

"Vieles sieht man nicht" is supposed to be correct but the word 'man' translates to ONE/YOU/SOMEBODY, none of these words are used in the sentence "Lots of things are not seen"..din get dat

I wrote "Viele kann man nicht sehen." I thought it should be okay but no... :(

I have written the answer down, so I get it right next time. However from a meaningful English perspective, its a nonsensical sentence and in my opinion has no place on here.
