Älg is incorrect since we are looking for the definite form here. "Älgarna" and "älgen" are equally correct answers
so moose is in english singular and plural for älg? so you would say : a moose - en älg, the moose - älgen, moose (p) - älgar, the moose (p) - älgarna. ?? sorry my native languague is not english :) (i thought it was Mooses the plural in english)
I got to this one in the second animals lesson, having only seen it as singular, and was marked wrong for giving singular 'älgen' w/no way to know or expect the plural was required. I don't want to report it if this question usually shows up in the lesson on plurals, but a (plural) note would be awfully helpful!
I agree! I've not gotten to any plural lessons yet and was confused when I did not have älgen to tap on for an answer. So by sheer luck, as I knew the other option were definitely wrong, I got this one marked correctly.
It's an annoying byproduct of how Duolingo works - it's a correct answer, so we have to accept it, but the system then decides arbitrarily to show it to you even though it's not the default answer - and even though you haven't seen the plural before. Unfortunately, we can't do much about that. :(
This is getting me confused. I tot the plural of moose is älgen and now i discover that the moose is also älgarna, but if this process is used for other words, you ll b marked incorrect....
Why is "Älgen" marked wrong? This is a lesson before plurals so I did not think it would be älgarna, which is the correct answer but I thought "älgen" should be correct as well.
Yes it should be. But when I tried to enter it, it was marked wrong and the corrected answer was "älgarna".
Oh, I don't doubt that, just wanted to let you know that since it's accepted, it was likely a bug and not an administrative oversight.
