Translation:There are one hundred books in our office.
Same here. Seems that DL doesn't understand that 'a hundred' means the same as 'one hundred'.
"They are 100 books in our office" - rejected.
They're no longer accepting it???
"They are" and "There are" have VERY different meanings. "They are" should be rejected. And if someone wants to try "Their are"... that's also wrong. ;)
I think it's because it says 我們, which is "we". What you submitted would be just "办公室里有一百本書"
The correct answer says "we have...". Is there anything in the Chinese sentence that specifies that "we have" the books? I understand that it says it's our office, I'm just not clear if that sentence structure could also be saying that they are ours.
Yeah, they're making a bit of a jump in logic to say "we have". Literally it says "the inside of our office has 100 books" so "our office has 100 books in it" might be more accurate but a bit unnatural so I think Duo's answer is how most people would phrase it. After all if the books belong to our office and the office belongs to us... ;)
No, DL, you can't tell me in all previous questions that "place + 有 + number of things" means "there are number of things in/at place" and then count "In our office there are a hundred books" as wrong. Reported.
It's really annoying to have 'a hundred books' rejected and corrected to '1 hundred books'. The contributors need to fix that, that's not how you use numbers.
"There are one hundred books in our office." is accepted. Jan. 18th 2018
All the suggested answers have the same meaning. You understand the idea the characters are conveying. Report it as 'should be accepted'.
It rejected "There's a hundred books in our office" and corrected me to "There are 1 hundred books in our office".
This was my last problem to test out of this section, I had no lives left, and of course saying "a hundred" instead of "one hundred" screwed me over. D:
"one hundred books" is literal or is it an expression in Chinese meaning lots of books?
"Our office has one hundred books in it" was rejected... I don't see any reason why.
