I'm tired of not being able to distinguish what the speaker says! Is it "in" or "il"? Is it "pepe" or "peppe"? "Tale" or "sale"?

I said 'Mix the salt and the pepper.' I was thinking in the imperative here, but it was marked wrong. Does anyone know what the imperative should be here? Or did I get it right and the program hasn't included the imperative in its options?

The English is posed as a question, and a question can't be imperative; was it changed after you wrote?

I translated it as "Do you combine the salt and pepper?" since it was a question, and it was marked as correct, even though the word "combine" was not listed as one of the options. I am an English speaker and therefore was thinking of the most logical way it would be said in English.

Thanks f.formica. I don't really remember now. Maybe I just didn't notice the question mark at the end of the sentence. Old age is not for wimps :P
