"Las camisas son rojas."
Translation:The shirts are red.
I read "las camisas" as the blouses, since it seems to be feminine. Is there a way to avoid this mistake, other than memorization?
"The shirts are red" could be the answer to the question "What color are the shirts?" "The red shirts" sounds like an answer to a totally different question. "What shirts should we wear?". "son" = "are" though and the duolingo translation is right.
Rojas is the feminine adjective. Camisas are a feminine noun. Rojos would not work because it
s the masculine adjective and it only works for masculine nouns like "Zapatos" or "Vestido". Most nouns that end in an "-o" are usually masculine. Rojo would work even less because its talking about one shirt or camisa. This sentence is talking about multiple shirts.
yes, but was that a rude request for lingots or was it a question. If it was a question, you have to click the give Lingot button beside the reply button, but if it was a request for lingots, then no.
No, it's not. The word "shirts" is in plural form so the verb "are" must be used here.
"Las camisas" is 'the shirts' "Estas camisas" is 'these shirts'
It's because that sentence is singular, but 'las camiSAS son roJAS' means that it is plural. The correct sentence would be 'The shirts are red.'
Camisa is singular. Camisas is plural. La camisa es roja - the shirt is red. Las camisas son rojas - the shirts are red.
I wasnt paying attention and thought i hit red but i didnt so it read the shirts are turtles
THE SHIRTS ARE TURTLES. Mom: "Eso se ve querido!" Daughter: "LO QUE EL INFIERNO ABSOLUTO?!?"
Rojas is feminine plural because camisas is feminine plural. An adjective must agree in gender and number with the noun that it modifies.
