Structure of sentence
I came across this sentence "Diese Haushaltsgerate haben meine Eltern" and i asked my german friend about it and i was told that this is structured incorrectly. it should be "Meine Eltern haben diese Haushaltsgerate". So my question is, why on Duolingo is it written incorrectly?
The phrase is a bit difficult. Both subject and object are plural. If you would say: "Einen Rechner haben meine Eltern nicht" it would be instantly clear, that Rechner (computer) is object. By putting the object first it gets more emphasis like in: Einen Rechner haben meine Eltern nicht, sondern eine Stereo-Anlage."
