  5. Den Vogel isst die Katze


Den Vogel isst die Katze

duolingo said that this meant The bird was eaten by the cat or the cat is eating the bird!!! how will i know this when i come across other similar sentences because i thought for sure this said the bird is eating the cat even though it sound like it could not possibly be right that's how it was written

    Sure, you can do that, but it's still important to understand this phenomenon. Make sure you read this. http://german.about.com/library/blcase_sum.htm
