The population want more jobs is correct but was marked down because it's British English. (May 2014)
Yes, report. And in Portuguese it's common to use the singular form in this case: emprego.
There are many questions where this happens but I keep forgetting to change. This anti-British discrimination must end! Ahem.
six years later and Jobs is still not accepted!!! One could speculate questions / answers like these are just there too lose a Heart, or to encourage users to get premium Duo
Acho que não!
"Want" is correct - who created this language?!
Both singular and plural are correct. It depends on what you want your listener to understand.
That's my point! Therefore "Want" should be accepted.
This question is very confuse..... In the phrase in Portuguese the word "Job" appears in singular... But in English the Duolingo shows us in Plural...
how about "the populace wants more employment"
