  5. "No resultó como yo quise."

"No resultó como yo quise."

Translation:It did not turn out how I wanted.

March 17, 2013



I put " it did not turn out the way I wanted.", and was marked incorrect. I believe it expresses the thought correctly. What is wrong with it?


Yep, but here in the lessons Duo is often not happy with 'expressing the thought correctly.' :) I think 'how' is pretty firmly entrenched as a meaning of 'como,' and that 'the way' is confused with a path or route in the Duo-bot mind until a human adds your translation.


That's accepted now. I just put "It didn't turn out the way I wanted" and it was marked as correct.


It was not the result i wanted. marked wrong, does anyone know why


Because "the result" is a noun, whereas "resultó" is the third person preterite conjugation of the verb "resultar".
