Is ο κροκόδειλος είναι το αγαπημένο ζώο μας also correct, or must the pronoun come straight after the the adjective?
See here ;)
Perfect, thank you!
The answer: "Ο κροκόδειλος είναι το αγαπημένο ζώο μας" is also correct and should not be shown as a mistake!
It has been added now, note however, that this closer to "We have a crocodile, and, out of all of our pets, that's our favorite one" in meaning.
Why is not 'ο αγαπημένος μας' here given the crocodile is masculine?
"το αγαπημένο μας" modifies the word "ζωο" which is neuter.
