"How many red purses do you want to buy?"
Translation:¿Cuántas carteras rojas quieres comprar?
I received the answer "¿Cuántos bolsos rojos...?" Aren't purses "bolsas"?
Yep. Apparently bolso is also a handbag but it should accept bolsa too for purse.
yes, bolsa or bolso can translate to handbag or purse. I notice Duolingo has been using cartera but you are not wrong.
My (mexican) girlfriend says "bolsa" is used for purse (and pocket apparently) a lot. This only allows cartera (which she says is more like a wallet) and bolso.
marked wrong when the above was the same answer I just gave. They stuck a tu at the end of it?????
I was told to use a different form of to want which wasn't even given to me as an option
