"Do they give the food?"
Translation:Donnent-ils la nourriture ?
The previous exercise was written like that: "Donnent-ils de la nourriture?" And I've answered: "Do they give food?". Well, the program has accepted it as right. The following exercise was written in English: "Do they give food?" and I checked the box "Donnent-ils de la nourriture?" The program didin't accept my answer as correct and itself-checked the other two options without "de" before la. Which one is correct?
De la nourriture= (some) food, or just food, "De la" is feminine, "de" is maculine, "des" if plural mas. & fem. It means "some" or "any". Nourriture is a feminine word so you must use "de la". This question however, asked for THE food. So it must be the feminine for "the" : "La nouritture"
