OMG! fish is both sing and plur, right? Even if they not ask about fishES it still would work for plur, indeed.
In english "fish" can be used for plural or singular but "fishes" isn't incorrect for plural either which is why it can be confusing.
Agreed! I reported it. 7 April 2020
Why is it "Io ho i pesci" and not just "Ho i pesci"? Many times throughout the course the "Io" is omitted, especially with the avere verb. Why not in this sentence. When do you have to say/write it and when not?
It's perfectly fine to say "Ho i pesci" here.
This thing is wrong, the english sentence is singular
"Fish" can be singular or plural. "Fishes" is just an optional alternative.
yes but you can't say "i pesce" only "il pesce" or "i pesci". (although that was my first instinct too)
But shouldn't it be "ho il pesce"?
Well, fish can be singular and plural. But when i once wrote "fish" as "i pesci", it was marked as wrong. So i think duolingo mixes this up a little.
This lesson is about plurals, so one should assume the plural form of "fish" (since "fishes" isn't a proper english word)
This came up in a strengthening lesson with no plural context. Fish is both singular and plural.
I agree with you. There's no indication on what to use since fish can be either singular or plural
I agree with you nice said
I agree also this sentence can be either singular or plural
Exactly, so I'm confused. You can have 10 fish, but fish is fish.
Fishes is a proper word.
...if it's used to refer to different species of fish, not the number of fish.
slaps forehead...you are right! Plurals!
fishes is a proper english word
Does anyone from duolingo cares or reads all this useless mumble...?
Is "pesci" always plural. "i pesci" but not "il Pesco (or il pesci?)"
It can also be singular: "il pescE"
"Fish" is the singular form of "Fishes". The subject should agree with the verb. And singular nouns go with plural verbs likewise for the plural nouns go with singular verbs.
Mess with the mafia, you sleep with the fishes
Io and lo look the same. Cant tell the difference between the "i" and the "l". Should include pronunciation to avoid confusion.
Чому не fishes ?
This sentence is a little bit confusing in english
Why is it 'i pesci' and not il pesci.
why cant this be 'Io ho il pesce'
The plural form of fish is fishes -- i pesci. So if the sentence "I have the fish" then the translation should be " Io ho il pesce". And " Io ho i pesci" should be translated as " I have the fishes".
I pesci is plural and the sentence in english was written in singular, ????
I didn't have an option to chose article" i" ,there was only "lo"
Translation is in plural It shoud be Singular
