I used "at" instead of "in",that was not accepted. I think it should be and will report
Maybe "at another place" would be "all'altro posto"? And "in another place" is supposed to mean something else? Like, another seat or something? I have no idea :) But yeah, same here, "at" wasn't accepted, 4 years later :')
As suggested by rachel-chel, this sounds like a euphemism for "they are all dead" - they have gone to a better place!
This is what happens when you're the sole survivor of the apocalypse, or when your friends haven't played Dead Island and don't know what to do against the zombie apocalypse once they run out of ammo.
You're right and Duolingo is wrong. It could also be (in British English", "My friends are elsewhere" Both are how English mother tongue speakers would express this sentence.
Un' is only for feminine words begining in vowels. Notice that apostrophesizing it wouldn't change the pronunciation at all, hence it's not done.
And in "Un' " the apostrophe signifies a missing letter, namely "a", which is not missing in "un" since it was never there :-)
Could someone please explain the use of "Un" vs. "Uno"? Is "uno" only used as a cardinal number? .
Uno is the number "one" or the article "a" when followed by a word beginning with z..., sp... ,st... etc.
I wrote "un'altro" and it was marked wrong and Duolingo wrote me this: "Pay attention to the gender." What does that mean?
Un + altro = un altro
There is no change. You don't just put any two words together with an apostrophe. E.g. you don't say Io'sono una'donna :) Un and altro are fine separately.
Una + altra = un'altra
This happens because "altra" starts with a vowel, so the article "una" becomes "un'"
Duo thought when you wrote "un'altro" you wanted to choose feminine gender, and "o" was just a typo, so it warned you to check the genders (posto is masculine)
I put "My friends are in another position." It was marked wrong. I guess position could mean standing in another way?
It could mean that, but it could also mean 'place'. 'Standing another way' would seem a very unlikely possibility.
