"This message is important."
Translation:Este mensaje es importante.
Esto is neuter. Este is masculine and goes with mensaje.
Esto is not used before nouns, since all nouns are either masculine or feminine.
I was wondering also. My husband who speaks Spanish as a first language says either esta or es works in this sentence.
It said i got is wro g, but then showed the correct solution as what I selected. Mensaje was available twice?
For me even "Este mensaje es importante" was checked as incorrect by the system. I wonder why?
My answer exactly matched the "right" answer, but was counted wrong. What gives?
I answer "Esta mensaje es importante." Every time, but it always says wrong!
