"Their father is aged."
Translation:Pater eorum est senilis.
Why not Pater eorum senilis est? I feel like there is no continuum with the word order.
I answered like that too and flagged that my answer should be correct. It is still in beta and there's bound to be errors.
I'm having trouble sorting out the numbers or declension that make "pater eorum" the right answer, and "pater eius" is wrong. Help?
I mean, I know it's plural "their" so that seems to go with a plural "eorum", but "pater" is singular so I wanted to use "eius" singular. But I'm really confused about third person possessives in general.
