How is "Right now it is 12 o'clock." not an acceptable answer? Is that not another way to say "It is 12 o'clock now?" 'Cause in the end, the sentence just means "It's 12." which is understandable as is by nearly anyone and everyone.

That should also be accepted.

Me too. I read and understood every character except the first one. When I need a hint I float the mouse over a problem character and it shows me a clue. It says on the pop up "right now" so I used it and it was wrong.

There might be a better construction in Chinese that "right now" (as opposed to just "now") translates to.

Couple things:

Now it is 12? Incorrect. Now it is 12:00? Correct. Seems like splitting hairs.

I understand marking me wrong for noon, as that would be 午, right?

"中午" is noon.

"now" isn't even necessary. We assume the time you speak of is the time right now in English, unless stated otherwise.

Watch out: I just got another answer wrong for translating 现在 (with now). And I got this one wrong, too, for omitting it (now)!

Would "it is now 12:00 O'clock" reasonable?

I put a space between o' and clock, and it was counted wrong, pretty harsh hahaha

So, are you guys reporting when an answer that should be accepted isnt, or when there are issues? This is one of the smaller duolingo courses, so it's important to report when there are issues so that they can improve the course. Also, how's the response rate when you report issues?

12:00 should also be accepted

Why is "It is noon now" not accepted? I would like to spend more time learning Chinese and less time trying to guess which answer Duolingo will accept.

The Pimsleur course uses 钟 (zhōng) for times, e.g. 十二点钟. Is this optional?

It is now 12 o'clock. This sentence is also correct.

Lol. The Chinese people interpreting the proper and common useage of the English with very minimum sentences and words. As you and I and all other people who speak English (first language mostly) are learning Chinese with minimum proper Chinese sentences and useage we can give the "teachers" many more other sentence organizations that eould also be correct. However thede other English sentences are not in the computer to monitor them as correct sentences...yet that is. Just write the "My sentence should also be correct.". This will ebentually be read by a Chinese person read it and add it to the correction lists. Not much other actions will quickly make better English to help the student get proper answers more easier and faster and make the students more positive learning Chinese. Dui bu dui?
