"The fly is in the sugar."
Translation:La mosca è nello zucchero.
Nello is the compound of in+lo, nel of in+il, so they're used with the same rules as "lo" and "il".
Why is it 'a' fly when it has 'the' in front of the object. Its always accepted it before
The answer I'm seeing at the top of the page is "the fly is in the sugar", so I'm not sure why it would tell you the answer is "a fly". You're correct, in this sentence "la mosca" = "the fly".
Made a small typing error and it didnt mark it correct. Only one letter was missing.
My phone will not do the accents so I am aware of them but unfortunately it just wont do the exact accents over words.
Depending on what kind of phone you have, I think there's probably an easy way to type the accents. On iphone, if you hold down the letter you want to accent, all the different accented options of that letter pop up. I think it's similar on android.
