Why not को after आठ ?

You can put the 'को' after 'आठ बजे' but it's often dropped.

Why करती and not खाती?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vinay92

It's like 'have breakfast' vs 'eat breakfast'. Both are fine but नाश्ता करना is a tad bit more natural.

Does सुबह have to come before आठ बजे ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vinay92

Yes. Usually.

Is it wrong for me to say: जूलिया नाश्ता सुबह आठ बजे करती है।


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vinay92

Since नाश्ता is the direct object of करती, it is usually placed right next to it.

Still, it is not grammatically wrong to separate them, especially in colloquial speech. However, if you do that, the को after सुबह आठ बजे is not dropped to make it clear that what she is doing is having breakfast and the सुबह आठ बजे is its own phrase. जूलिया नाश्ता सुबह आठ बजे को करती है।
