Translation:The museum director was held in that prison.
This should really frighten me, but inventing context aroung Duolingo sentences is maybe the most creative thing I've done in the last twenty years. At least it's one of the most fun things. Albeit the task with the current phrase here is a bit shallow.
Greetings to everyone sharing our common pleasure.
RCDC: I agree with the proviso that 'was held' and 'was being held" aren't always interchangeable. "was being held' implies he was there at a certain time in the past, without indicating whether he was / is still there. "was held" also applies to the past, but in this case it could imply that he in no longer there; he was released at some point. So he was held there but isn't there any longer. "was being held" to me implies that at the time under discussion that's where he was -- it says nothing about what happened afterwards. Otherwise, given a clearer context, then I'd agree the two phrases would describe the same situation.
It's also correct and it should be accepted. Please report it.
Nevertheless, notice that some English noun expressions, such as the roles in an organization (e.g. team leader, museum director, school nurse, company secretary) are usually expressed with noun inversion (Y X) instead of (X of the Y).
Quello has its own set of rules similar to bello
Quella donna - that woman; quelle donne - those women; quel libro - that book; quei libri - those books;
For the masculine nouns that use lo and gli, it would be: Quello studente - that student; quello zio - that uncle; Quei studenti - those students; quei zii - those uncles
"quella prigione" translates as "that prison"
"questa prigione" translates as "this prison" [questo (a); questi (e)]
Yes. The museum director is equivalent to a CEO in a corporation. He/she is responsible for the daily operations of the museum, for long-term planning, policies, for any research conducted within the museum and for the museum’s fiscal health. Directors must also represent the museum at meetings with other museums, business and civic communities, and the museum’s governing body.
A museum curator cares for objects in a museum’s collection. His/her primary activities are maintenance, preservation, archiving, cataloging, study, and display of collection components.
