Why isn't "Es ist meine Hand" acceptable? Duolingo frequently uses "das" and "es" interchangeably for "that." Is this not actually the case?
My understanding is that Es means 'it' and Das means 'that'
what is the difference between, meine Hand and Mein Hand
use 'meine' becuase the word 'Hand" is feminine. Mein is used for masculine and neuter nouns in the nominative case
