You are correct but both fish and fishes are accepted as correct in English. If you want to answer to be just fish, the phrase should be more specific. I have over 20 years of schooling (high school, undergrad, grad) and have taken several English writing classes. Fishes has always been acceptable as a plural form of fish.
As an English person, I'd just like to say that normally the plural of 'Fish' is 'Fish'. It's similar to 'Deer', the plural of which is 'Deer', or 'Sheep', the plural of which is 'Sheep'....
It is a possible form within CONTEXT. For example, all the fishes of the sea = all the different kinds of fish. But in American English, fish (as a general group) most definitely like water but not necessarily orange juice.
like someone else said: fishes should still work. fish is not the only way to translate "Fische"
Not in modern English, anyway. Shakespeare and the translators of the King James Bible used it, true, but that was 400+ years ago.
Because Orangensaft is masculine (der), so in the accusative case kein ends with an -en
Is this sentence just for the grammar? i can't even think of a situation where i would use this sentence IRL... Funny though.
A while ago i had visitors in my house and a kid poured juice in my aquarium trying to feed the fish. I said: "Hey kid fish dont drink juice!"
After a quick google search I have found a picture of a fish drinking orange juice: https://9gag.com/gag/ajrNWBq/fish-drinking-orange-juice-from-a-baby-bottle3
So "Fish drinkS no orange juice" (note the -s ending in 'drinks') is not acceptable? Why?
Fish do not drink any orange juice is actually more accurate than fish do not drink orange juice. Why does it say it is wrong?
I don't think it's more accurate. "Literal" translations are not always word-for-word....
I'm typing the correct German every time, exactly what they show me is the "correct" words, and yet it keeps saying im wrong. And, of course, it wont let me advance! What do I do now????
I am writing exactly what is shown to be correct, but am being told what I've submitted is not correct! And, of course, I am not able to advance! Any help??
There was no audio and I got marked wrong - it didn't say "no listening exercises" - there just wasn't any audio
Fish don't drink... it isn't right. It should be Fish doesn't..... isn't it?
I am typing correct answer and app is time and again rejecting my ans...look into this guys!
Your answer Duo is wrong, if you put the name in plural we will use the verb also in plural. Then the right answer is Fishes don't drink orange juice…
