Why the hate for orange!? Haha, I love these odd sentences on Duolingo, like the German course's 'heilige Kartoffel' (holy potato).
Just because something’s color isn’t what they wanted, they shouldn’t repair it into another color! you have to be grateful of what you have
Why oranssi not oranssia? I would have expected partitive here.
The chair is countable so the adjective should be in the nominative case here. Se on X is it's own sentence and doesn't refer back to the case the noun is in, in the previous sentence.
Mehu on oranssia.
Tuoli on oranssi.
But why in other exercises for countable chair we should use "tuolia"? F.ex: "– Korjaatteko te tuolia?"...
Because you use partitive also for ongoing actions.
Thanks, that makes sense!
Tervetuloa "because" to our course!
Why not "painting a chair"? It was marked wrong but I'm not sure how you tell when it should be translated as "the" and not "a"...
Technically it would be correct to say "a chair".
