"The shop is closed today."
Translation:आज दुकान बंद है।
I thought Aaj could be placed anywhere in the sentence, but for this one they want it at the front. Can it be placed anywhere else and still be correct?
आज cannot be placed "ANYWHERE" in the sentence. You could place आज after दुकान but you'll need to rephrase the sentence.
आज दुकान बंद है (The shop is closed today) changes to यह दुकान आज बंद है (This shop is closed today)
This changes the meaning of the sentence (kind of) but that's the closest thing I could come up with.
Because that means "this" and you can't put "this" in the middle of the sentence. It wouldn't make sense.
It should be correct, I've been speaking Hindi my whole life and I've put aaj in specific places in the sentence that would make sense.
