"I have the fish."
Translation:Io ho i pesci.
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.
yes but you can't say "i pesce" only "il pesce" or "i pesci". (although that was my first instinct too)
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.
"Fish" can be singular or plural. "Fishes" is just an optional alternative.
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
Io and lo look the same. Cant tell the difference between the "i" and the "l". Should include pronunciation to avoid confusion.
Hello. 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? Thanks.
Put some kind of notice when you want plural with words like fish that have same plural and single form. Or except both answers
