This is wrong because the genders don't match. It would be like saying "One man out of the two women would come."
Great explanation. Thanks!!
are numbers feminine
Numbers aren't masculine or feminine, though one, because it can be used similarly to 'a/an' has a feminine and a masculine form as if it were an adjective that reflects the item they are counting.
Could it be that 'delle' indicates that the two objects are feminine and therefore uno doesn't agree in gender?
I have the same answer, marked incorrect, and the same question.
Not accepted March 2015! What happened?
Yes, I agree. Why is the only accepted answer feminine, una. Uno was rejected.
the masculine should be accepted.
why use the feminine form?
Uno was rejected....
Any particular rule why "uno di due verrebbe" is marked wrong? The error is "di" instead of "dei".
Because 'di' is just 'of' you need 'dei' = 'of the'. Di + i = dei, di + le = delle, di + la = della, di + il = del etc.
I'll try Elaine's. Thank you, Elaine.
Uno dei due sarebbe arrivato.
Could someone please explain why this sentence is incorrect?
That would be “would have come” and not “would come.”
