Doesn't «Αυτή είναι γρήγορη» sound exactly the same?

Yes, and can I assume that you had this on a listening exam? We need to know this so we can have it removed from the listening section as it causes confusion. And please when you write a comment please give more information. If you have anything further please let us know.

Yes, that is correct. I didn't know the questions were not classified by type, that's why I assumed it was clear for you that I was talking about a listening question. Besides that omission, is there something else I should have added to the question? Ευχαριστώ πολύ!

You see we have no idea what you were asked, which part of the exam it was nor what you answered, whether it was accepted or not. So, we need all that in order to be able to resolve the issue.

In addition, the bot doesn't know that there are two sentences that sound alike. When that happens we need to request that that sentence be omitted from the listening which I have done. It is the information given by the learner that makes it possible. Thanks for your help and please continue to give input.

I got this one today! And hearing it, I didn't know whether to write Αυτή είναι γρήγορη or Αυτοί είναι γρήγοροι. Still I reported it and I am encouraged that I knew that both were possible! That's progress!

Both were possible but only the plural was deemed to be correct.

I thought γρήγοροι was greek for 'Gregory' X'D.

That would be Γρηγόριος or Γρηγόρης

Was this on a listening exercise? Was it in Strengthen Skills. I've disabled it as a listening and reported it as a homophone problem. Let's hope it get fixed soon.

These are sentences that have long since been reported but still haven't been corrected. Sorry about that. Let's hope that in the new tree this will be put right.

Can ´αυτοι είναι γρηγορι also be translated as ‘they are quick ‘?

Yes, but pay attention to the spelling of "γρήγοροι".
