「おおぜい」「います」。 There never be the words like おおぜ!


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

Yes! This isn't a good way to teach and test people's understanding of words when the options you give are not correct words


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

I think it's just like a puzzle, it shouldn't be a problem after you know which word is lacking, Duolingo it's just testing us

「大勢」「居ます」

I love it when you put words in like this?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/David.Bailey2

Please fix this, it's been over 4 months. The report system should have an "other" option for cases like this which don't fit the other options.

「人」Should be read as hito

What is the difference between おおい and おおぜい? The hints give 多い (おおい) for "a lot of".


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

According to a comment in this thread, おおぜい is specific to people, contrary to たくさん, which is more general; looking at the Wiktionary entry for おおい / 多い, it appears that the latter is general too.

can "oozei" go in front of "otoko no hito"? I thought I'd seen Duo do that previously, but was marked wrong for this.

It's raining men!


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

This was a sneaky one, I almost thought it was an error!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RayyanSheh1

おとこのひとがおおぜいいます。

Otoko no hito ga oozee imasu.

「すこし」few 「おおぜい」a lot


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

And I thought I was the only one who almost missed this. Peopl edon' twrit elik ethi sduoling o!

男の人 + が + おおぜ + いい + ます Are you serious, duo?!


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

how is this different from takusan?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/asaph.neig

Is it always います with 大勢 and です with 少ない and never the other way around or what...?


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

why is this が when a very similar sentende is は??


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

Would 男の人が大勢です work too?


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

The correct sentence was not possible from the available options.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Roee790945

It is possible, but they made it annoyingly easy to miss


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

I write the exact same answer as duo but it said it's not right.
