"The two needles are hers."

Translation:Cele două ace sunt ale ei.

February 9, 2017



Why is "The" translated as "Cele" instead of inflecting the noun "ace"


You need to use "cele" here because of "două". It works the same way with other numerals too: cei/cele trei, patru, cinci... If there were no numbers, then you should inflet "ace".

A good song to remember this rule that I would recommend since it's entertaining and comedic is Cele Două Cuvinte by Taxi ;)
