Malam is evening!!! I have never used petang and no-one I know uses petang.

The mouseover on "evening" gives the options "malam" and "sore", but the answer says "petang". How are we supposed to know which word to use?

how do you know when to use 'petang' and when to use 'malam'?

When do I put 'hari' on the end and when do I leave it off?

I think if you say something like 'pagi hari' it's a generic 'in the morning' that could be about any or every day (depending on the context of the rest of the sentence), whereas 'pagi ini' means this morning specifically.

Can I have some guidance please on my word order

Kamu pergi malam ini dengan siapa?

I have never heard anyone use that word, "petang".

Sore, petang atau malam.. Confusing to me! DuoLingo isn't being clear! And here, in the comments, native speakers don't seem to agree with each other either

"siapa bersama kamu pergi malam ini?" salah?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Chuck919019

"Malam ini" is more accurate than "petang" (dusk)

petang is not used for evening
