I keep getting this wrong
The "question" is the following: The cook is learning with her ingredients. I answer with Die Köchin lernt mit ihrem Zutaten, but it keeps telling me the correct answer is Der Koch lernt mit ihren Zutaten. I'm no expert with the Dative and I don't know if it says it's wrong because of the difference between ihrem and ihren, but I'm pretty sure Köchin is femenine and due to the sentence saying her I immediatly made the association. Can someone explain this to me? If I'm right about this they should change the options to make it a little more clear to students.
Kragi, the way I think about it... to explain the use of "der koch" with "ihren"-- the cook isn't necessarily cooking with his OWN ingredients. If we made up some context for the sentence, there could be a woman or multiple people offstage whose ingredients he's using. "Die Frau hat eine Küche. Der Koch lernt mit ihren Zutaten." Wouldn't that be work?
