"Os gatos bebem água" must be correct.

yeah.. report the mistake when that happens


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/juanpablo321

Don't know how can I do it.

when you commit a mistake, it appears underneath "report a mistake" there are some options like "my answer should be accepted" " the sentence sounds weird" then u submit. if they think ur right, the'll send u an email letting u know they have accepted your answer and included it now :) this way you help duolingo, new learners and yourself :)

Thank you for your help. Can I do something now? I don't know where is the "report a mistake" link for that sentence.

Well... im afraid u have to go back to that activity again and commit the mistake on purpose or do that on the discussion part when u open the level (under the books you find new discussion) at the bottom of the homepage u find feedback. There u can report that too :)

Theres two answers in this one, cats in english dont have gender so leaving this vague. So, os gatos & as gatas are correct.

When it tells me to traduce "The cats drink milk" or "The cats eat bread", they correct me wrong is either is "gatas" or "gatos". I have to practically guess which one is it. It is nos the same as Spanish (my mother language). Gatas is for female and Gatos for male.
