drawing of a kid or a kid's drawing.. the sentence is a bit vague in my opinon.

had the same problem here

I think it could mean both.

Does the "wa" imply ownership, or does the drawing portray a child?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/the3lusive

It could go either way but in this case I believe ownership.

If anyone gets stuck here in andiod app. Go to web version of swahili I managed to get past this section and later returned to the android app. Sketch of a baby does not get accepted.

    I see no reason why both usages shouldn't be applied.

    So is this typo "skatch" still there (4 years later, Dec 2021)?
    If so, please do report if you are using the Android app. When you click on the report flag you can type in a detailed explanation that it is a typo they need to fix. (They still may not find time to fix it, but at least we can hope they add it to their to-do list.)

    Just report it they will fix it.
