Des hommes sont des enfants.
why isn't this right?
My guess... is that because des signifies ownership of some quality, but to specify men as being the subject of the sentence, les must instead be used. ie. des is only used in front of the object (children) of the verb (which in this case is 'are').
This is 100 percent right. Duo got this wrong. It doesn't say "the men" it says "men in general".
I love this sentence.
Why can't i use l'hommes?
"Les hommes sont les enfants."...this is not correct?
That would translate to "men are THE children". I think.
I wrote this "hommes sont des enfants"
Why do we need "the"? I mean it's not there in the sentence.
You need an article before the noun. (In french it's necessary.)
