"Did the noisy animals disturb you? Yes. They disturbed us."

It's sometimes difficult to tell whether "you" is intended to be singular or plural.

Why is "lISuj'a'" the correct answer and "nISuj'a'" isn't?


Notice that this is a question and answer. When you read the question, it is impossible to tell whether the "you" is singular or plural. But then the answerer says "us", so we know that the original question was asked to multiple "you" and lI- must be the appropriate prefix on the question.


That makes sense. Thank you.
