Translation:The cake is ready at four in the afternoon.
Yes, I am living here in Italy and generally speaking the times displayed in public places, like in a train station, or often the time displayed on the pharmacy, are the 24 hour clock.
And, people will say at 16 in Italy
Not this sentence, but after clitics, this is a relatively easy exercise. Clitics need a context and so many sentences make no sense!
Agreed. The English translation of "The cake is ready at sixteen" does not make sense.
Se verrete in Italia e parlerete con qualche Italiano, vi accorgerete che nessuno parlando usa chiamare le ore dal 13 al 24.
Si usa specificare se l'ora in questione e' di mattina, del pomeriggio, di sera o di notte.
How would the sentence be different if it were meant to say 'on the sixteenth (day of the month)' instead of 4 pm?
The day of the month is male, hour is female.
So, "Ci vediamo IL 16 " is the day of the month, "Ci vediamo ALLE sedici" is the hour.
Yes but the Italian version says 16 while the translation does not accept it. I doubt people in Italy say "at 16" either.
Actually it is quite common to indicate time like this in Italy. The equivalents in English are four pm, four o'clock, sixteen hundred hours...but you're right I don't think anybody says at 16 in English.
This does not make sense. Did anyone think automatically, let me put 4pm here?haha
The translation should say..."16 o'clock" not "four in the afternoon". It might suggest that, but "sedici" means 16. It's confusing!
"Nobody" in the U.S. maybe? I went for "16 o'clock", but English isn't my first language. Any British English speakers here to clarify?
I personally don't think that "in the afternoon/PM" is necessary for the translation. Most English speakers would simply say "at 4:00"
Tip; you can translate this as "The cake will be ready at ..... " which is accepted and makes more sense in English.
I was marked wrong and given this translation: "The cake is ready at sixteen hundred hours." Is this a joke?
Теперь стало понятно, почему я ошиблась в этом задании, а не создатели программы. В русском языке можно сказать и четыре часа и шестнадцать!
I doubt how many got it right at the first instance. You need to be so much imaginative!
Once again the number is 16 and the program thinks it is not. Fix it, please.
There is nothing to fix. The point of language study is to learn how things are said in that language.
