It's the masculine accusative or dative plural word for 'the'. You'll learn all about these terms and how the German case system works as you progress thdough the course.

If you're using the app, I highly recommend switching to the web version instead. It features a lot of grammar tips and notes before most lessons.

If I'm correct, this is the case table. (credit to paralars1 for a bit of it) Duo

Akkusativ neuter is "Das". Also it's a bit misleading to write object for Akkusativ and prepositions for Dativ, because both cases are used for both objects and prepositions.

To be exact, Akkusativ is for direct objects and prepositions of direction, while Dativ is for indirect objects and prepositions of location

Masculine accusative and dative plural form of "the". As Mr_Eyl said, do switch to the web version. The tips notes are great
