"These pigs are nice."
Translation:Estos cerdos son simpáticos.
I really don't get it. Why not "estan"? "Nice" is nothing fundamental but a condition. I read on a different "drop the temporary" (when thinking about estar). But ... here?
Why is it estos when another question was este cerdo and esto was rejected? I am so confused.
Because cerdos is plural, not singular. Also, esto is used when it is a neutral gender. So, since cerdo is a masculine gender, you would use este for cerdo.
