Would anyone care to explain the process of where to put nicht in a German sentence? It is still quite unclear to me, I try to do my best, but a lot of times I am just guessing. You can use this sentence as an example. I just would like exact clarification so my German friends actually know what I am saying. :P Even if it is very little.

What about "I'm not seeing it"?

I don't see it.

The word 'nicht' is sometimes put after a German word, for which reason I don't know. If it sounds wrong, try putting it in a way that makes it sound right, without changing the sentence too much.

my answer should have been correct it makes me so mad when they don't accept an answer that should be correct

"I see it not" is perfectly respectable English, if a little old fashioned.

doesn't it sound like "ich sehe euch nicht" ?
