be'nalwI' ? ghaH boqor'e'.

Noticed another curious Missing Word sentence with the following:

Isn't {be'nalwI' bang pegh ghaH boqor'e'.} a perfectly good sentence that I believe means "Bokor is my wife's secret love"?

That's really funny! Both choices work in this sentence.

Those exercises are generated randomly, so I don't know if it's something we can fix. It's better if you go to the sentence discussion straight from the exercise because then it tags which sentence it comes from for us. Do you recall which Skill that was. Maybe I can find it.

The Discuss button for a missing word sentence is non-functional for me, but the skill I'm practising is Family 1.

I found it and it was one that we have control over. A few of those sentences were created with an assumption that you would get the translation and had to choose which word choice was correct. I've disabled that particular exercise.

It mkes sense that some exercises are randomly generated because I was just practicing hebrew and one of the sentences was "the turtle eats bread."

Well, all of the exercises use sentences that were created by a human. But some of the multiple choice exercises are generated randomly. However, the correct answer will always be a sentence that an actual human wrote. Weird sentences like, "the turtle eats bread," are added in sometimes because the contributors have run out of creativity and sometimes because they feel things are getting bored and they want to throw in an unusual sentence to give the users a comedic break from the boring sentences.
