  5. "We can not see the apples."

"We can not see the apples."

Translation:Mi nem látjuk az almákat.

November 16, 2016



Hi, Couple of questions. Where is the "can" in the correct answer? The example Hungarian seems to me like "we do not see the apples".

Also, why is " mi" important to this sentence? Is the subject not clear from the verb case?



Can anybody explain why this turns into Látjuk?


You need to use a definite verb here, because of "az almákat" (definite accusative). The definite verb form in this case is látjuk (the indefinite would be látunk).

Én látom, te látod, ő látja, mi látjuk, ti látjátok, ők látják.
