Is not a single man a 'bachelor'? Is there an equivalent word in French?
yes, célibataire. here because of the form of the sentence, célibataire is an adjective.
Apparently he's a crazy cat man
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
why does duolingo insist that you add "about"
Not surprised its "about" - it would be pretty difficult to count that many cats exactly - puss or minus a dozen, perhaps!
'centaine' means approximately a hundred, not a hundred exactly.
You can't have less...
I also used bachelor
I used the word bachelor and was marked wrong. Duo, please update your English !
A bachelor is a single man
How is he single? I know several women who'd date him just to see the cats!
love yr comment
why not bachelor?
célibataire is not a trade or profession and here doesn't have determinative article (un/le/du) so it must be an adjective. it can be a noun though: "le célibataire a une centaine de chats."
