"The plates are in the cabinet."
Translation:De borden staan in de kast.
The dropdown for the before cabinet says de / het. The dropdown for cabinet says kabinet / kast / kabinetkast. So I put 'de kabinet', and got marked wrong. If you need HET kabinet, then instead of making 'the' a separate dropdown, join it together with the dropdown for 'cabinet', as you did on a previous question in this unit, so it's clear Dutch requires 'de kast' but 'het kabinet'. God knows what it needs for kabinetkast... Det?
Duolingo among other words offered me only two definite articles : de and het . Considering that it was an exercise in which I was supposed to rearrange the words in the correct order , it was impossible for me to provide two articles "DE". Unfair question. I suggest DUO to review the question.
