My problem with this is that the Indonesion order is "I" and "HE" but the so-called correct answer in English is the reverse.


In English, the pronoun "I" has to be put in the last position, but it is flexible in Indonesian.

Indonesian: "Saya dan ia" or "Ia dan saya". English: "He and I" (not "I and he").


This is right. No matter you want to say "dia dan saya or saya dan dia" it will be correct in Indonesian


"I and he are rich." = also accepted as a correct answer.


Thank you, yes it should be. It really does not translate as "he and I". Perhaps the DuoLingo guys are teaching us the mores of English where it is more polite to refer to the other part before oneself, and this does not apply in Indonesian....?


I thik its bc "i and he" is a wrong way to say it but "he and i" is the correct grammer therefore when translating to english it gets reversed


Rule of thumb ... courtesy use of pronouns ; reverse the pronouns ... 3rd person before 2nd person , before 1st person. That's formal, whereas colloquially you're more likely to hear 'me and you' , (for example )


This phrase has the same error as I cited in the discussion "Aku dan kamu.". When you say "Saya dan dia", the literal translation is "Me and him/her". Not "He/She and I" because that would be backwards. Again, if I am wrong, please do not hesitate to correct me. If I am correct however, please let the creators/editors see this so the error may be fixed. Terimakasih!


Could you also have "Me and her are rich?" I imagine there can be quite a lot of correct possible translations to this in English


It would be incorrect grammar to use the object pronouns "me" and "her" in the subject place of the sentence. The subject pronouns "I" and "she" are required in English. As for the order of the pronouns, the correct order would place "I" closer to the verb ("are"), so the order should be "She and I are rich."


Yes it can thats what i put and it showed as correct


Didn't show correct today. 4 January 2021


The pronunciation is slightly odd. It's not "di-a"...it's "di-ya"


I'm not sure about the grammar! But the correct answer is "Me and him are rich"!


Why use "are" i can't understand please, explain to me why can use "are"???


Upset that Me and him isn't accepted- But proper English Grammar proves my mistake. I was just thrown for a loop-


Upset that I came back 3 days later only to find out that "Him and I" doesn't work either. Nice.
