The male speaker sounds more worked up with each successive sentence. (At least in the order I'm hearing them today)
Couldn't "It is late" be also accepted? At least this is how I interpret the meaning of this sentence.
I don’t think so, but I will admit, the sentence doesn’t strike me as something you’d read in Latin.
It's really annoying. If it's not idiomatic, it's not actually part of the language... and it shouldn't be on Duolingo. Fake words (Novum Eboracum) and truly inane sentences make a mockery of the study of the classics.
