So why "-pa-"?
The "it" in this sentence refers to a place (class 16) ... and apparently we're supposed to be mind-readers because the English sentence gives no clue.
Why not wameitumia?
Can't determine what "it" is...clearly they indicate locative in their answer, but it could be anything that contributes to reading books (I use a computer, some might use a desk to help, or any thing that contributes?
I thought it would be "-ki-" assuming that "it," whatever "it" is, would be in the same class as books, ie for reading.
No way to mnow this is pa
Why isn't "wanafunzi wameitumia kwa kusoma" acceptable? The answer given assumes a place but there is nothing to suggest that it couldn't be an object.
Agree with all comments
What about... they have used it (the book)....
Nowhere does it say what 'it' refers to
Glad I am not alone in finding this somewhat confusing
