What about ' What is the population of the Gelderland province' ?
Mmmm, 'province of' sounds better to my ears.
why isn't "what is the population of the province gelderland?" ok?
That's what I put and it was marked right, it must have been corrected...
That's too literal. Think of it as having a more official(/posh) sound in english.
Most geopolitical subdivisions seem to have an 'of' between the level and the place name: the state of New York, the province of Saskatchewan, the county of Suffolk.
The only exception I can think of is Irish counties: County Cork.
It is now. Must have been one they missed before. :-)
I thought it should be 'inwonertal', so I checked trusty Google for some numbers. But then Wiktionary is very specific about the use of 'bevolking'!
Under hints an alternative is given: glederland for Gelderland.
This needs to be removed
Ummm, was it meant to be there or was it a mistake putting "glederland" as one of the hints. o.o
What does this sentence even mean?
Population comes from the same stem as people, but it's more about people who are based in an area, so it means something like "How many people live in Gelderland?"
