in what meal is spinach replaced with pasta ;m

Given that 'des' is a required grammatical form that doesn't necessarily mean 'some' - cf des pates - 'Does she want spinach' ahould be accepted.

Should it not be 'ou elle préfère les pâtes' as opposed to 'des pâtes'?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Scorpion.Heath

why not "préfère les pates ?" Another exercise "Tu preferes les sushis au thon ou au saumon ?

Strange choice to have to make

Does she want spinach or would she prefer pasta...not accepted 04/05/21. Will someone please explain why?

I think it's the "would". I think that would require the present conditional ("elle préférerait").


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Paul873890

why is it 'some spinach' but not 'some pasta'? A previous exercise was marked wrong for translating 'des epinards' as 'spinach' and not 'some spinach'.


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

My answer was "spinach" and "some pasta". It was accepted. This was a tile exercise and there was only one "some".
