So in order to say someone's age, we use the typical for Romance languages structure "to have [amount] years" (a avea ... (de) ani), don't we?

In English it is correct to say that someone is not has.. Years old

in some of the other similar exercises, the correct answers suggest number+ani without de, i am wondering what is going on

What I've gathered from other comments: 20+, add de. Under 20, no de.
