"There is your book and mine," is the "correct" answer. Correct English grammar would require a plural verb for the plural subject. The correct translation should be "There are your book and mine." It is a compound, plural subject.
First of all, it's such a strange sentence in English that it's hard to think of any normal circumstance in which it would be said. Is this the sort of sentence that would actually get uttered in French? As for the English grammar, "There is yours and mine," is not incorrect, on the model of "there is right and wrong." The subject in this case is distributed to both predicates: There is right and [there is] wrong. There is your book and [there is] mine. Moreover, if an English speaker were actually to utter the sentence, this is what he or she would more likely say.
I agree the sentence is strange. In English you would be far more likely to say “there are our books”.
your are not correct. "right and wrong" is a compound noun and therefor singular (like "the stars and stripes is a beautiful flag"), but yours and mine is not a compound noun, and therefore it should be "there are your book and mine" It is a plural object.
In a previous exercise " il y a" was explained as being either "there is/ there are" depending on whether the noun(s) that followed was/were singular or plural so why is "there are your book and mine"not accepted by DL?
When we have a disagreement with your answer, we should have the option to skip the question. I am not going to write your answer, because it is wrong.
I agree with you. If we try to skip it, DUO marks us wrong anyway and repeats the question.
Of course, if it's the same book, which happens to be both yours and mine then it's correct!
Ok so I'm gonna think it like this.
French - Spanish Le mien - El mio La mienne - La mia
Le tien - El tuyo La tienne - La tuya
Le sien - El suyo La sienne - La suya
And so forth, am I right?
I'll add one to the list of those not hearing audio for this particular one. I can hear it in every other question and need to copy and paste the revealed answer to complete this round.
your book and mine are two books, therefor the right answer is; there ARE your book and mine
