"The monkey is in the zoo."
Translation:La scimmia è nello zoo.
Masculine words beginning with Z, with S compounds and some special groups of consonants need LO instead of IL as article... Some examples:
Therefore, you have here "nello zoo".
Is it because scimmia is a feminine noun? I think that's right but apologies if not
Duo just told me exactly this. "Lo scimmia" was accepted but with a note that it's feminine so it should be "la scimmia".
I not sure but I think from comments I read lo in used in words that begin with s or z ......???@-@$$
