why tamhleten?? is ten also an option?

Yes, in the other direction though. Why tamhleten? Because we wanted a sentence with this word. The Czech sentence is the original point we always start with.

is the "bud'" necessary in czech? in english the "either" isn't an absolutely must.


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

It is not necessary per se, but it is better for the translation of this English sentence that does contain "either".

It is accepted even without.

In the Tips, it says that "either...or" usually translates as "buď...anebo". Is there a reason that's not the case here? Thank you!

"nebo" and "anebo" are synonyms.
