I was marked wrong for writing 'Raj eats banana'; the suggested correction was 'Raj eats A banana' even though 〈 एक 〉 is not included. It's now suggesting 'THE banana' too... Which is correct?
An article is required in English which is why you need to add one even when its not present in the Hindi statement. you can use either "a" or "the" for this statement
This right ✅
“A banana” and “the banana” are both correct because the sentence doesn’t specify which banana.
Native speakers will simply understand it as, 'Raj eats bananas'.
This isn't accepted as correct unfortunately, though this makes more sense translation wise
While banana is केला, bananas (plural) is केले.
It now accepts this (7/27/20)
I answered Raj eats a banana and was marked incorrect... it suggested Raj eats THE banana.
My mother is a hindi speaker and she told me both are correct but in Duolingo it shows that articles are necessary, that too specific ones ..... It's correct even without articles.
Same so i was confused
