Translation:8:45 in the morning.
I think it is just specifying A time, not saying that that is the current time, so Duo doesn't like your "It is" before the time expression. I also think you might need a space before the "am" to separate it from the 8:45.
Maybe you need a space between the 45 and the am... It accepted my answer of 8:45 am.
The sentence is not correct if 'it is' is not used. The correct sentence in English is: It is 8:45 in the morning. The English sentence given by Duolingo is wrong.
It is not a complete sentence, but a phrase. So it could be better to use that one.
There absolutely is. "8:45 in the morning" means it has to be 8:45 AM, and vice versa.
The former is for early morning, the latter is for late morning. I forget the approximate cutoff, but I think I learned it's usually like 10. Either way, it's not a hard distinction.
They are pretty much the same. 早上 is just more of "morning," while 上午 is before noon. There really is no difference, it's just used in different contexts.
I was taught 早上 is usually used between 6am and 9am, 上午 between 9am and 12 noon!
It doesn't accept the written out version of 8:45.... I wrote "eight forty-five in the morning" and it was wrong...
I did the same - you should give instructions about whether it's acceptable to use numbers/letters
That is not really how it is said in English, although the meaning is clear enough.
"It is 8:45 in the morning." Is it WRONG only by adding "it is"??? Your translation cannot be considered as a "sentence".
Yes, the Chinese is also not a "complete" sentence.
现在是八点四十五分. = "It is (now) 8:45 in the morning".
"eight forty-five in the morning" ---- not excepted... My frustration level
They checked the punctuation, which I don't even know if it's even correct cuz I'm bad at punctuation and grammer. LOL
You used the wrong word. I said it is 8:45 in the morning. Why is this wrong
this is getting on my nerves 8 hours 45 minutes in the morning = wrong 8:45 in the morning. = correct
In English "8 hours 45 minutes" is how you specify the duration of a period of time, not how you specify the actual time.
