Shouldn't "a domo" be accepted too? It was marked incorrect.
Domi = in house
Domum = to house
Domo = from house
İn urbe = in city
Ad urbem = to city
Ab urbe = from city
domus = house/home
rus= rural zone
do not want any preposition for locative complements;
A domo is not correct??
Ab domum ad urbem imus. Why is it wrong?
Because "domo" means "from home". Home is one of those words (like town/city/small island names) which takes locative, never a preposition
"ab domo ad urbem imus" may be correct...
I think 'ab' becomes 'a' before consonants
Sort of correct. Before vowels ab must be used. Before consonants either a or ab is attested in classical Latin.
No. "Domo" means "from home". No preposition required
I think "a domo" should be accepted as a correct answer
