"O estudo"

Translation:The study

Does study here refer to the practice of study? Eg "Biology is the study of living things" or can it also refer to a room called "the study" eg "He took his lunch to the study"?

"O estudo" is correctly translated by Duolingo as "the study". But, could this also be translated as "I study it"?

No. The «estudo» in this sentence can never be translated as "I study" because it has the article «o» right before it; therefore, the «estudo» must be the noun "study." "I study it" would be «(Eu) estudo-o.» or, equivalently, «Eu o estudo.». (Unless what you are studying is feminine like «a matemática», which would then be «(Eu) estudo-a.» or «Eu a estudo.».)

I've read the thread, and it seems like a case where English requires the word "of" after "study" in order to give this meaning, as in "the study of mathematics." We would normally use the gerund, "studying mathematics."
