I write "The boys' hats are big"
Duo marks this as correct but displays the warning:
"You have a typo. The boys hats are big."
e.g. it seems to think that there should be no possessive apostrophe? What's going on here? (Also, because it's marked correct, there is no Report "My answer was correct" option, so I don't know how to feed this back to Duo except here).
The apostrophe after "boys" is appearing on this page, but it is missing in the app (at least from the web-based version of the app).
"The children's hats are big" was marked as spelled incorrectly (in my native English) but I'm 99% certain it's right. Any thoughts? <3
Hi there! You are absolutly right, that's what I lern. We know that we know and that's what counts. Thank you for your posting.
It depends on the context, but normally it is related to boys, only. For meaning children we say "crianças"
"The boys' hats are big".
That's the way you write this one in English. I'm not up on my Portuguese grammar rules, so I don't know how to write "The boys' hats are big" using Portuguese.
