Isn't e he as well? How do you know when it is it?

I agree. There's no context to decide if "it" or "he" is meant, so it should accept both answers

It accepts he.

Why bheag it is not formal is it


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DerickRethans

No, it's not formal. But some words (such as "ro" and "glè") make the word that follow undergo lenition. Have a search for "The Magic of Lenition" at https://duome.eu/tips/en/gd
