The "position" refers to the grammatical unit - the subject of the sentence, for example, the predicate (verb), the object, etc. So, it is not necessarily the second word.
Jane eats fish.
1st position - Jane
2nd position - eats
3rd position - fish.
The man and his dog are eating fish and potatoes.
1st position - The man and his dog
2nd position - are eating
3rd position - fish and potatoes
I hope that helps
I have seen multiple comments from native speakers saying that the present indicative tense, namely, "We do not pay," is very often used to express future action in addition, such as, "We will not pay." It implies certainty, whereas actual use of the future tense may or may not be so.
As others wrote, the future tense "we will not pay" is "Wir werden nicht bezahlen."
is bezahlen different from zahlen? i think zahlen more means to buy right?
I got confused, I indeed meant "pay" instead of "play"! Thanks for warning me, and let me reiterate my question correctly:
My answer was "We will not pay", and was considered wrong. But, though is not the literal translation, you can actually say "Wir Bezahlen nicht" meaning "We will not pay", right?
why you said my answer is wrong?
Nobody can see what you wrote, so please always include your entire answer in your comment when you have a question about why something was not accepted, ideally in one of the following ways:
- by copying and pasting your answer from the exercise into the comment (not by re-typing it -- many people make small mistakes when they answer which causes their answer to be rejected, then when they re-type the answer to ask about it, they do not make the mistake again and their sentence suddenly looks fine)
- by taking a screenshot, uploading it to a website somewhere (e.g. imgur), and pasting the URL to the image into your comment.
