  5. "You all are hungry."

"You all are hungry."

Translation:Ihr habt Hunger.

Why are my answers: "Ihr habt alle Hunger" and "Ihr seid alle hungrig" not accepted?


This sentence belongs to the Pearson course ( https://www.duolingo.com/comment/24066422 ).

They apparently decided to use "you all" to indicate that they expect an answer of ihr -- something that is inconsistent with the rest of the course.

Until the Pearson course is separated from the public course and those sentences (hopefully) disappear, translate "you all" with just ihr, not with ihr alle, Sie, Sie alle or anything else.
