Yes i wrote what he wrote 'negatieve antwoord'. And i understand my mistake now thanx to you. But duolingo underlined the word 'antwoord' which might be why he is confused. I know i was.

So "ik schrijf een negatieve antwoord" is not a good answer.... Be more specific then

How would you like it to be more specific?

Well, it refused my answer because the correct answer was "ik schrijf een negatieve reactie", but last time I checked, antwoord was the correct translation for "answer". Maybe it could be translated by "reactie" in some context but there is no context in Duolingo exercises. And "een negatief antwoord", sorry

  • Het antwoord - het negatieve antwoord - een negatief antwoord
  • De reactie - de negatieve reactie - een negatieve reactie

I understand that, my point is that I answered "Ik schrijf een negatief antwoord", and my answer was rejected. The correct answer was "Ik schrijf een negatieve reactie", and that I find a bit unfair since it should be more precise (Maybe was due to a type, I do not exclude that, but I always check before validating since I was in a shortcut test)

If it happens again take a screenshot and post it here. For now I can only assume you wrote what you wrote first: een negatieve antwoord.

You say you always check, though it wouldn't be the first (nor the last) time that someone is convinced they gave a correct answer and overlooked a mistake.
