Why isn't it 'má velká hruška?


You need the accusative case, read the Tips and notes about it.


Can you please just explain it, it is almost impossible to get those on a mobile device


Unfortunately no, we cannot. At least not us from the moderating and contributing team. There are way to many people asking stuff that is covered elsewhere.

Other users are welcome to help you, though.

Note that you can use your mobile web browser for Duolingo and the Tips do work there. You can use any textbook or similar resource of your liking instead.


I see that is used in the 3rd person singular and plural. She/he/they.


Can I put "Žofie velkou hrušku má." ?


You can, in very limited situations where you need an exceptional emphasis on 'má.'

Stick with the default translation. Despite its quirks, Czech is mainly a SVO language.
