"Tôi biết ấy. ấy số mười bảy."

Translation:I know her. She has number seventeen.

Does this sentence mean that she's 17 years old?? Or that she's waiting in some line for her turn and she has the number 17. ????

I guess she is an football player. I imagine she has number 17 on her jersey!

I rather think she plays Quidditch. Go for it, beaters!

Why cant it be 'she is'?

Because you will be corrected with "she's". It's a goofy Duolingo error.

What on earth does it mean

Sometimes "muoi" has a huyen and sometimes it doesn't.What's the rule?

mười is used for 10-19. for 20 and above, you use mươi

yes, she has number 17 didn't really make sense, so I thought that must be the VN way of saying she's 17 (years old). I wish they'd use an asterick or some other sign to signify when the translation is going to be non-sensical in English, so we know to just directly translate, and not worry about the meaning. Because half the time it's one way, and half the other, and how are we supposed to be able to guess which one? Then we have to get marked incorrect, and wait for it to come back up to make the correction. Grrrr-ness!

FYI: this exercise won't accept "the number 17"

when you get to the one with two thousand sickles, they won't accept 2000 either!
