You need the article "the" here. Are the nights not long now?
Why do I need the article "the" there? My sentence seems like valid English to me, and I don't see anything in the Czech that requires "the".
This sentence has a number of possible ways it can be written, and yet they are erroneously marked incorrect. I know what the sentence is saying but because the arrangement of my words in the sentence are different I have this marked incorrect. For example, this was my response which should have been accepted:
"Are now the nights not long?"
Reported but commenting in case others had the same issue.
I wrote: "Aren't evenings now long?" And I believe that this sentence is also correct.
