  5. "I do not have time."

"I do not have time."

Translation:मेरे पास समय नहीं है।

October 6, 2018



would 'mujhe samay nahin hain' also be correct ?


I think पास is only used for tangible items. Shouldn't this then be मेरे समय नहीं है।


No. Paas is not in regards to humans but is used for objects, be they tangible or intangible. In this case, "mere paas samay nahi hai" is totally fine. Also, your sentence's translation would without "पास" would become nonsensical, something like "my time is not".


Yet, you can use this structure to state how many sons you have, for instance: "mere tin bete hain" or in word-for-word English "my three sons are". So, why not here? Am I remembering previous lessons wrong?


Once again, response not accepted because of the | missing... please update


Why "hona" is not according with subject ? We don't say मेरे पास समय नहीं हूँ। or "We have..." : हमारे पास ... हैं
