"How much is a pile?"

Translation:Fungu moja ni shilingi ngapi?

August 18, 2018



Sometimes they need "ni", sometimes not. Is there any particular rule?


is it just me or does the translation have little resemblance to 'how much is a pile' which could ask how big is the pile, how much material constitutes a pile....the further I get into the course, the more of these 'errors' or at least questionable translations I am finding.


You simply lack the context to understand the text. Its not an error.


You could go the shilingi route, but this form is totally different then using just ngapi or bei
