Why is "Copiii mai bătrâni" wrong? I understand that since they're children, it's who's bigger as nobody is really old, but shouldn't it still have the same meaning?
I wondered that too! "Copiii mai bătrâni" is still marked wrong two years later...
Same problem here too!
Because bătrân refers to old-old, elderly, not "greater in age" (mai mare). Children are not elderly, except in the case of a certain rare genetic disease.
Could it be 'cei mai mari copii au...'?
"mai mari" is comparative plural = older / bigger
"cei mai mari" is superlative plural = oldest / biggest
Yup thanks realized that afterwards :)
I'm wondering about that too
