The cruel side of Duolingo playing with the internet folks' feelings :(

Is it possible to interprete/translate it as "No ones girlfriend, no ones wife?"?

No. In your sentence, "No one" would translate to "Niemand" (though in some other gramattical case -- I will not attempt to translate "No one's girlfriend" as I'd likely make a mistake, my German isn't good enough for that).

Were you looking for 'Niemandes Freundin'?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tholenst2

Yes :)

It's difficult to get the "Niemandes" right there!
