Does "relativ" also mean someone who is related to you as in English? Or is there another word for relatives in German?
Yes. Relative (Family) is der Verwandte (ein Verwandter) | die Verwandte Pl.: die Verwandten
When I looked at the hints on hover it said "rather" could also be correct, but when i submitted it duo said it was incorrect! Help please?
I think it depends on the context. For example, if we say: es ist relativ klein,( it is rather small) then it is the dame as you say I guess .
