Why can't this be translated, "Oes, mae clust dost arna i"?

If you look at the 'Hints and Tips' for this section you will notice that most generalised infections (colds, flu, a temperature, chicken pox, malaria, ...) are ar someone, whereas more local problems with particular parts of the body (broken arm, bruised head, earache) are gyda/gan someone.

Sorry, I thought I read the 'Hints and Tips' before refreshing the unit. Apparently not enough.

I did add a sentence to the notes to highlight ar vs gyda - that might have been after you went over the notes. We try to update the notes from time to time in response to common discussion points.
