"Jibu ama swali la kwanza au la pili"

Translation:Answer either the first question or the second

October 5, 2017



In English, what's wrong with "Answer either the first or the second question?"


Compare to a previous question (Chagua ama kula sasa ama baadaye). Is there any difference between "...ama ...ama" and "...ama ...au?" The same with "...wala ...wala" and "...si ...wala" in the negative.
