Shouldn't "the car ahead" also be correct?
The car ahead? Same thing?
Yeap, 'the car ahead' is not accepted.
Two years on and "the car ahead" is still not accepted, nor the comments moderated.
I tried, "The first car" and was marked wrong, what do you think?
First is πρώτος, μπροστινός is "in front". The car in front of me is not the first if I am third in line. ;)
Ah I see what you mean. Does it imply 'in front of me." or just, "in front."?
It normally means "in front of me". But it depends on context also.
