  5. "– Paljonko kello on? – Se on…

" Paljonko kello on? Se on tasan neljä."

Translation:– What time is it? – It is exactly four o'clock.

And again, should be "What time is it?- Exactly four.


I would usually say 'It is four o'clock exactly' or 'Four o'clock exactly'. I would only say 'It is exactly four o'clock' if I wanted to emphasise the 'exactly'. So not to accept it seems to show some unfamiliarity with English as spoken.


I chose from the word bank "It is exactly four." It said I have a typo and suggested "its exactly four." THAT is a typo.


I get a lot of questions wrong, like this one, where I understand it read it and just answer it in English but forget to put it into Duolingoease O'clock

    Yes the transaction appears to be erroneously adding words that arent needed or there at all.


    It tells me I have a typo when I don't put the apostrophe, but its suggestion... Also doesn't include the apostrophe!?


    Isn't finnland on a 24h clock? So generally the exactly is a bit over the top as it would refer to am.
