Would "I cannot find a cable there" be better?

Halo teman! Perhaps it could not fit well with "cannot", because the Indonesian sentence would need to use "tidak bisa". So, your sentence would be, for example:

Saya tidak bisa menemukan kabel di sana.

The Duolingo sentence could have many other translations in different tenses, using "a" / "the" with singular and plural nouns, and just needing the verb "find" in single or compound forms.

Selamat belajar! :)

In that case, how about 'I did not find a cable there'? You're much more likely to say that, even if the current sentence is no T technically incorrect.

It doesn't fit the Duolingo paradigm but it's possibly a more natural translation to English.

For me somehow "the cable" fits very naturally to this sentence, but I was marked wrong for it.

I found no cable there. Best fits the Indonesian sentence structure
