"Obiectele sunt grele."
Translation:The objects are heavy.
Does not 'grele' mean heavy AND hard?? I'm wondering why 'The objects are hard' was not accepted? How can you tell which to use?
Hard means "difficult", "resistant", "strong" etc in english. If you talk about an object's weight you use "heavy" in english. You can figure the meaning in romanian if you know the context. An exam can be "greu" (difficult). A car can be "grea" (heavy) or "greu de condus" (difficult to drive).
Duolingo has used 'greu' to mean 'solid', though, if I'm remembering right? Or have I just been interpreting that way? And in such a case the context would not help, as a hard object could also be heavy?
