that is the destiny of the ducks...:)

CATS: All your ducks are belong to us.


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

the program accepted 'ist' instead of 'isst' as correct

Your cat is our duck.

Use the "Report a problem" button to the bottom left of the practise window.

it does that a lot. I don't know why. possibly due to spelling mistakes.

Now I feel wholly prepared for when I visit :D

Could it be duck-meat, rather than a pet duck?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Santosh8055

why it is "unsere" not "unser". i don't understand

.

Because it's "die Ente", and the pronouns in German have to be adjusted to the noun's article (e.g. for die it gets an 'e', for the different version of unser see e.g. http://de.wiktionary.org/wiki/unser#Possessivpronomen.2C_1._Person_Plural )

Thanks a lot for reply. so in few cases pronoun adds 'e'. could you please say in which cases it adds 'e'. link provided is little is lacking clarity.


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

Regarding the table provided on the linked site: only an 'e' is added in the following four cases: - nominativ case + feminin noun, i.e. mein + die Ente -> meine Ente (my duck) - nominativ case + plural noun, i.e. unser + die Enten -> unsere Enten (our ducks) - akkusativ case + feminin noun - akkusativ case + plural noun I don't write examples for the latter two, because in these cases (feminin and plural nouns) you're lucky: they behave the same as in nominativ case.
