Does quota mean something different in German? Is this a common German sentence? As an English speaker I am not sure I understand.


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

What it means?


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

quote may also mean rate as in room rate

Thought that too, but how could that be "old"?

Maybe the rate (price) that you were quoted has expired? Just speculation..

Yet another nonsense sentence :D

This sentence also does not seem to make much sense either.

Hmm the price is old didn't work As in the price is out dated.

Does quota mean price here or a number that has to be filled? ("We're about half way to our quota for the day, so keep working everyone!")

This has to be the worst usage example ever. Unless Quote means something diffrent in German than in English.

This is just one of those sentences, like "The fly drinks beer". You don't have to over-analyze it. They don't all make sense. :-)

dude, what's wrong with the fly drinks beer? i understand that one perfectly. " the quote is old. " now that surely means nothing to me.
