  5. "The bathroom lamp is green."

"The bathroom lamp is green."

Translation:La lampada del bagno è verde.

April 4, 2013



I put "The lampada del bagno è verde" and it came out correct. Is there a big difference ? Should I understand the first one as "The lamp in the bathroom" and my answer as "The lamp of the bathroom" ?


it's almost the same and you understood it right!


La lampara del bagno is the bathroom lamp, because it's the lamp of the bathroom (it is in the bathroom and thus belongs to the bathroom).

I wrote the same response, but I got it incorrect because I used an indefinite "del" instead of the definite "del"... which is probably a glitch -.-" But you've got it right.
