I feel that the word 'all' has been ignored in the 'correct' response.
Euch = you all
Dir = you
"Das hilft ihnen nicht" - Why is it not correct ?
They have used "ihr" - Informal plural
I used formal singular/plural "ihnen". Can anyone explain about this?
ihnen = them (third person)
Euch= you all (second person)
Can you tell me why it is hilft and not helfen please. Is it because 'hilft' refers to 'that' being the same as 'he, she, it?
the subject is "das" so the conjugation should follow "das". That's why "hilft" is the correct one.
Why can this not by dir or ihnen?
If the sentence omits the all at the end, then dir should work, Ihnen (the polite form) needs to be capitalised.
The conjugation of "help y'all" is, according to what I understand, "helft euch", not "hilft". What am I missing?
The subject of this sentence is not "euch", but "das". Since "das" has a third person singular meaning, it requires the third person singular form of the verb.
Warum nicht "Das hilft du uber hauptnichts"?
Euch hilft das nicht?
I thought word order did not matter so much in German. Couldn't that still be said, emphasizing you all?
Why is garnicht incorrect?
