I don't understand. 먹다 means "to eat", right? Why 먹지, and what does this "지" in it mean? Is it because 않습니다 is there instaead of 아닙니다?
To negate a verb, the formula is +지 않다. I don't go, she doesn't eat.
아닙니다 is not to be. I am not a student, you are not teacher, he is not married, etc.
The definition for the word 먹지 glitch on my screen so I didnt know what it meant
