Translation:The table is not made from iron, but from plastic.
Well, I just added some suggestions from the problem reports. There are currently 682 accepted variants.
my only difference is, made "of" iron and they say, made "from" iron, otherwise identical but marked wrong. Aren't "of" and "from" interchangeable. ?????
I do agree with this. Even tho I do understand that in German this might not be the case. In English "made of" can be replaced by "composed of" while "made from" is more "by the action of".
This is a very frustrating sentence. It accepts nothing but one specific sentence. "The table is made not from iron but rather from plastic" is not accepted. Can anyone explain why?
I see a comment from 3 weeks ago from a mod stating 682 answers are accepted. About your sentence, I would say "The table is not made of Iron" but yours should work also (except the "not" placement)
Die komplette Lösung stand schon da. The complete answer was given allready.
Why is this answer wrong? Can someone please clarify? "The table is not made of iron, but made of plastic". The error is shown for the phrase "but made of plastic".
You've repeated "made", which to me sounds at best unnecessary and at worst slightly awkward. I've accepted it though.
Not officially, but in a sense yes -- it's not used as frequently in day-to-day speech, in my experience. The "court of public opinion" has "voted" on it rather than any central language governing body.
I think that the clause "made from" is incorrect, the standard English says that "anything is made of", just a regence problem.
I wrote "The table is not out of iron but out of plastic." It should be accepted. The inclusion of the word "made" should not be compulsory. English speach does not require it. I am a native English speaker.
Because it’s for the outside terrace where it can handle being in the rain.
I'm not really sure what you mean, but if you encounter a bug with the functionality of the app (not the grammar of the translation) you should take screenshots and report it here: https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/articles/204728264-How-do-I-report-a-bug-
To be consistent with other exercises--many of them--in this unit, "The table is not iron but plastic" should be accepted, unless someone has a good reason otherwise.
