Yes, your answer should have been accepted I don't know why but it wasn't on the list. I've added it now. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks for letting us know.

Yes, although it is in the incubator it still hasn't be edited.

Let me explain the two areas of Duolingo.

Here you will find the creators and moderators of the language course all of whom are volunteers.

On the other hand, there is also the Duolingo professional and technical staff which among many other things administers the Duobot...the computer program that selects certain sentences for Strengthen skills, listening and multiple choice. It has not been updated to include all the sentences added by the course language team

That is where this problem lies. We have reported it and when Duolingo upgrades its Duobot this should be corrected. We, of course, remain with the hope that it will be soon.

Thank you for your input and understanding.

I am in awe of all these volunteers, what generosity! Its one thing to volunteer for a task once a month or even once a week but to volunteer day after day is truly awesome. And to top it off to be willing with erudition and good humour to help all and to answer the same questions over and over again it blows my mind. Thank you, it is deeply appreciated.

After nine is ten ? Or " ten is after nine" ?

Yes. "ten is after nine" is one of the accepted answers. Did you have a problem with it?

I put "after nine is ten" (because it followed the Greek phrase). I imagine that was the reason. Thank you.

It sounds better than what we had: "After nine comes ten." and is closer to the Greek. thank you.

"it is ten" sounds to me as if you're talking about time -- after nine o'clock, it is ten o'clock.

But το εννέα, το δέκα talk about the numbers as abstract concepts, not about clock time.

After nine it is ten. Why should that necessarily be about time? It is also about numbers!

"It is ten" would never be said in English. The correct statement is "after 9 is 10". But I think in Greek-English translation it makes sense.
