"This requires total concentration."

Translation:Esto requiere concentración total.

February 21, 2013



What is gender specific about this sentence??!! Why is it required to use "Esto" but "Esta" is unacceptable?


"Esto" is the neuter and not gender specific. I think when it sounds like it could be an answer to a question or if the gender of what you are referring to is ambiguous you always use "esto". Also you might be confusing "este"(masculine) with "esto".


Would "totala concentracion" work? Sound wrong, but why not?
