Translation:Habitasne in California?

Is "Habitasne Californiae?" correct as well?

As Escargotville mentions below, it's actually detailed in the Tips and Notes for the NEXT skill Places.

From the tips and notes for the next skill "Places": The locative case is a special case which indicates a location used for cities. Some general rules: -a (first declension) becomes -ae -us and -um (second declension) become -i

Other locations will generally get a preposition (in + ablative, we will deal with the ablative later in the course).

That's exactly what I wonder about too

Yeah like before this it said "Habitasne Romae" so for my answer I put "Habitsne California" and it said I was wrong :/

It says in the notes that the ending change is for cities, so since California is a state I assume that's why Californiae doesn't work

Just found that the note about this (locative case) is in the notes for the next lesson "WHERE"
