What's wrong with "These are not short pants?" Compared to duolingo's answer: "These pants are not short?"
These pants is an adjective + noun while These are is noun is a noun. "These are not short pants" would be "Kore wa mijikai zupon ja nai" instead of "kono zupon wa mijikakunai"
ズボン, not ズポン, but otherwise you're right.
i think for "not short pants" youd say 短くないのズボン instead?
Minus the の, you are correct. Conceptually pretty similar of course, but they're two different sentences.
I answered "this pant is not short" is thats not also correct?
In english , it is a pair of pants - each side is a pant leg. So you can say a pair of pants, or pants,or a pant leg. You do not say pant.
Pant is what dogs do.
Also, this suit is NOT BLACK.
Why cant this pant is short！
"Pants" is always plural, unless you're referring to a single pant leg
Underwears doesnt sound proper. Why cant we get panties?
"These underwears are not short" was accepted
Oh my gosh I forgot the r in short and now its all wrong.
