"Farmacia e aproape de florărie" should be accepted!

I would translate it as "Is the pharmacy close to the flower shop?".

Why can't you invert the word order?! "Este farmacia lângă florărie?" should be accepted as a valid answer. Farmacia este lângă.. is a statement, not a question.

Does "Farmacia este aproape florălie" not work?

No, it doesn't. You should use "Farmacia este aproape de florărie.". However, the meaning is changed a bit.

why not: farmacia e lângă de florărie ???


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/D3XT3RY0NuT

"Lângă" is not followed by "de".

Why not floraria?
