"The best player is the player with the green shirt."

Translation:Den bedste spiller er spilleren med den grønne skjorte.

Shirt does literally mean "skjorte" but when talking about players in shirts I do not think we are referring to that kind of shirt. If we talk about football then it would be "trøje" in Danish.


Surely it should be grønt not grønne


'Grønt' is totally out of the question because it doesn't refer to a neuter word but to 'skjorte', which is common gender. More precisely though, it refers to 'den ... skjorte' which is definite common gender, meaning the adjective has to take the plural form 'grønne'.
