Does comprend here mean include?
Yes, comprendre has two meanings:
The common one is to understand.
but the other one, rarer, is to include.
I link it to 'comprises' in my head.
Is there a preference between seulement and using the contruction ne que? I'm curious because I used ne que to find it accepted, but I'm not sure if one translation is considered better.
I wrote 'Le jeu n'a que quatre missions' and this was not accepted. Is there a glaring error that I've missed?
Dl's translation is perhaps a more literal one, but the «ne... que» is perfect. I can't figure out how to translate it back into English if it is not with «only».
what is the meaning of «missions»? I don't understand the sentence neither in English nor in French
In a war game for example you might be given four missions. Separate actions where a specific goal is set - to capture a building, to reach a certain point on a map etc.
Thank you, Cueman
Think Missioin Impossible
Why is "Le jeu inclus seulement quatre missions" marked wrong? Is the verb "inclure" not appropriate here?
It seems like you have a typo. "Le jeu inclut seulement quatre missions." - accepted.
Or alternatively: "Le jeu n'inclut que quatre missions.".
Hiya, Could one say "comprise seulement quatre missions" rather than "understands only four missions" as "includes" could mean comprises in the context given?
I said that and it was refused.
Refused my comprise too just now.
I have reported this - the English sentence to be translated has no clear sense/meaning in English.
I believe that many computer games are composed of a series of activities each with its own goal viz. missions.
Yes it does. I bought this game and was disappointed to discover it only included four missions and if I wanted more I had to buy them.
Shouldn't it be
Le jeu comprend seules quatre missions.
Seules is an adjective, e.g. Elles sont seules. After a verb (comprendre) goes an adverb, i.e. seulement
what is the meaning of missions?
Thank you for your explanation of mission. I am 71 years old and don't have a clue about video games. I should have asked one of my grandchildren.
