This showed up as a fill-in-the-blank with the choices "deos" and "dei." Obviously, "deos" was intended, but choosing "dei" results in a different sentence which also seems to be me to be good Latin and means "We gods love." Right? Doesn't either answer produce a decent Latin sentence? In which case this exercise needs to be changed somehow.

Yes. We, gods, love. Is correct.

From what I know from Classical mythology, that is a very bad idea.

The two options are right, "dei" and "deos"

Are you okay? Is everything alright? Blink twice if you need help!

    Agreed. Both options are correct.
