I have got used to using 'pedig'. Are there any rules for when to use 'meg' and when to use 'pedig'? 'Pedig' wasn't accepted in this sentence.
They are pretty much interchangeable. Meg feels a little less contrasting and more adding, but it's more a matter of taste and sentence rhythm.
-------- duo's correct response to me is: we've lunch at this... we've ? certainly, we've got friends is correct, but we've doesn't seem right for the contraction of we have lunch , much less we are having...

I think most contractions are done automatically by the computer, so you sometime have a bit of weirdness there. :)
The sentences on Duo are composed by a computer?? Care to elaborate?
Only the contractions. Contributors enter "it is not", the computer automatically has to accept "it isn't" or "it's not".
"We've lunch" sounds fine to me - but a little informal
The 'we've' contraction would never be used a native English speaker in this instance, because 'are' always comes between 'we' & 'have' in these types of sentences.
Actually I am a native English speaker :-)
Why is this one incorrect: "We are having lunch at this table, whereas you at the other one." ?
What does "ennél" mean? I'm guessing that it's a contraction for something - eznél?
The z of ez & az get assimilated: ennél, annál.
(Since the v of -val/vel also gets assimilated, both ezzel/azzal & evvel/avval are correct, although the vast majority of native speakers use exclusively the former.)
sorry, my answer is identic with your solution
