Can I omit "ao"?
No. The verb "pertencer" requires the preposition "a". Este quadro pertence à (a + a) sala / este chapéu pertence ao (a + o) smu marido
i will remember pertencer requires the preposition" a "
Great. "Agora isso pertencerá à sua memória" heheh ;)
could you say "o chapéu é do meu marido"?
Yes, your sentence is correct. It just doesnt match literally to Duo's sentence.
Very confused here. The word hat is in the English sentence (Duolingo even only gives one option) yet not in the answer.
Please help a very confused man!
Hat = chapéu, which is included in the answer.
Oh really!? Hmm, have to try again as chapeu certainly wasn't in the answer given for me.
