  5. "nuqDaq 'oH ngop'e'?"

"nuqDaq 'oH ngop'e'?"

Translation:Where are the plates?

Shouldn't it be {nuqDaq bIH ngop'e'}?

No. See the tips and notes for this unit: https://www.duolingo.com/skill/kl/Food-and-drink/tips-and-notes , which explain how ngop works and even uses this sentence as an example.

In short (also for others who might wonder the same): ngop means plates, and refers to several objects at once, but grammatically it is singular, thus it needs 'oH, not bIH. Think of it as something similar to tableware.
