Check here. The conjugation of scrivere. http://conjugator.reverso.net/conjugation-italian-verb-scrivere.html
It is interesting that the underlining dots that give hints give a choice of "scrive" to match "tu," but that would be misleading as "tu" only matches "scrivi". I am glad I was not tempted to go with "tu scrive," following the hints which would have been wrong and went with my instincts to put "Noi scriviamo, tu scrivi" which was marked correct!
I got this right, but it would be kind of helpful if Duolingo taught us the conjugations of the verbs. Ex: Scrivi = Scriviamo if it said "we write" Scrivi = Scrivete if it said "You write" (plural). I've always been confused with that, especially when it is other languages that aren't Spanish.
Hi Rehan, I think this is called "verb conjugation". Basically, it indicates who is doing the writing, with scriviamo inferring that it is essentially saying "noi scriviamo" which means "we write". Similarly, scrivete infers "voi scrivete, which means "you all write" or "you (as in plural you, you the group of people) write". From my understanding, all (at least, most) verbs have a similar way of acting, with the conjugation (the ending bit) telling you who is doing the action (something we don't have in English). Hope that helps :)
"Tense" has to do with verbs "person" is used with pronouns, which is what I believe you mean.
The plural "you" is used all the time in English. We use it every time we talk to more they one person and what to say "you", which is about the same frequency we would use the pronoun "you" when speaking to one person.
Duolingo will allow either the plural or the singular translation of "you" if it's not clear which one is meant.
