Hi, why is "Elas acham comida" not accepted? From previous sentences I had understood that "achar" meant "to find"

So "Eles encontram elas" could mean either "They find them" or "They meet them". Is that correct?

  1. Encontrar - to find/meet/come across.
  2. They find them - eles encontrĂ¡-los. And any combination of eles/elas and los/las, of course.
