‘ze’ or ‘ze’ she or they
I just started the Questions skill in Dutch (I’m new to Duolingo) and I couldn’t figure out how I’m supposed to know the difference between ‘ze’ in one question and ‘ze’ in another.
The sentences I’m struggling with are:
“Eten ze (they) geen brood?”
“Drinkt ze (she) geen melk?”
Is there any distinction between them?
The verbs tell them apart. For example:
Ze hebben honden = They have dogs.
Ze heeft honden = She has dogs.
Hebben ze honden = do they have dogs?
Heeft ze honden = does she have dogs?
For the sentences, you gave "Eten ze geen brood?" = Do they not eat bread/Don't they eat bread? Eten is a plural conjugation for plural pronouns (wij/we, zij/ze (they), jullie).
"Drinkt ze geen melk" = doesn't she drink milk/does she not drink milk? Drinkt is a singular conjugation (jij/je, u, hij, zij/ze, het).
Thank you so much! I was starting to figure it out but this clears it up, thanks!
