I think purple looks best. "the can be inferred but not required
Still wrong on January 27, 2019. Reported it.
'looks the best' sounds awkward. i would say 'looks best'
Agreed, "the" is typically dropped in English here
I'm from the UK and including the article seems most natural, and in fact what I entered!
I agree, it is optional. Interestingly, if it was 紫色的, I'd probably have gone with "the purple looks best", so my own preference would change in that case.
I put in I think purple looks best, but its only because there wasnt another the. I would've prefered "I think the purple one looks the best" or something similar.
I think that purple looks the best
I also reported this. In proper English grammar, "I think that..." is correct. Of course, common parlance often omits "that" after "/pronoun/ think..."
still not accepted as of Oct 16 2018. Reported
"Purple" and "violet" are similar for many people, so I think it'd be best to accept both?
Disclaimer, they aren't actually the same, but close, so same for the less particular about their colors. Sorry if I triggered designers. :---)
I think purple is the prettiest
Many translations for this
Reported it not accepting without "the", as there's no reason to require it, and it could mislead non-native English speakers. The article is optional.
"I think that purple looks the best." marked incorrect for 'that.' I tried putting in the most grammatically correct (if a bit stiff) English answer, and from these comments it looks like colloquial responses aren't accepted either.
What's wrong with "I think that purple looks the best"? Sigh.
What about "I think purple is the most beautiful."?
I've reported it but there are several answers which should be accepted including all variations of colour / color, purple / colour purple, best, the best etc.
(english is my my second language) duolingo is confusing me with these wierd translations :D
i 'believe/ feel' that purple looks the best should be accepted
I think that purple looks the best should be accepted
This is an example of the poor grading that I am finding at this level.
I like moving the to purple to specify the object... I think the purple looks best.
"I think purple is the best looking." Gee, where art thou now, Prince?
