Shouldn't this be "No podemos encontrar nuestros libros"? No encontramos nuestros libros does not feel correct without the verb Poder.
Agree, have been marked wrong before for using "can't" where Poder isn't in the sentence!
I don't understand why it can't be "we didn't find our books" Couldn't it be either tense?
I'm having issues with that too...it's the same conjugation for present and preterit, how are we suppose to know which tense they are using?!?
"We didn't find our books" should also be correct, since "encontramos" can be both present and past tense.
Despite earlier comments “we didn’t find”is still being marked as wrong Grrr
Encontramos is both present and past tense. Same word. Without context, either « can’t or didn’t » are correct. We had no context. I want my heart returned Duo. I’m trying to test out and this kind of をわやゆ doesn’t help.
we don''t find our books, we didnt find our books are both correct. I think we would need to have more context to use 'we cant/couldnt find our books' As in we looked all over....but...
