"The price of this pair of shoes is high."

Translation:Pipiʻi ke kumu kūʻai o kēia paʻa kāmaʻa.

The function, idea, or action comes first, so start with "pipi'i" for expensive/high. It will read as "High the price..." "Kēia" comes before the object, not after: "kēia pa'a kāma'a." - "...this pair (of) shoes."

    So, what is the special rule for this prompt? I tried "o pa'a kāma'a kēia" and was marked wrong.
