Presso is used a little differently. It sometimes looks like beside/besides: Abitiamo presso la chiesa = we live by the church, lavoriamo presso l'azienda = we work for/at/in the company. There are a few abstract uses as well but as except it doesn't quite work.

Why is 'Eccetto le mele, quale frutta tu mangi' not accepted? Is there a rule that doesn't allow 'tu' to be in there?

I wrote: "Tranne le mele, quale frutta tu mangi?" How is this incorrect?
