Now Duo is saying I missed a word- Seats.

Surely "they put at most 2 in each room" should be accepted... Reported

Now accepted :)

Where is the word for seat in that sentence!!??


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Alf-Sawman

Umm....no "seat" here in neither the English, nor the PT version...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mesmorino

There is no "seat" in that sentence, however, the last time I came across this question the word "cadeira" was there. I think it's just omitted from some variations of this question. That was the first time I saw "cadeira" in these variations, and the ones without it don't usually mark you wrong if you omit "chair/cadiera". Usually, because sometimes Duo thinks you're a mind reader

It's currently missing and marking it wrong :-( reported

I reported this omission. Not that it will make any difference. I wonder, would a native speaker know that they're referring to seats?

1) it does make a difference, I get emails when my suggestions and corrections have been accepted.

2) it probably depends on context. If you were standing in a room full of chairs and telling someone about how many are put in the room, they'd get it

What about "They put two in each room at most."?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jblumenfeld

Why not 'two at most in each room'?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/grantwhite

"They put 2 at most in each room" is better in English.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/malejandro84

it does not mention chair "chicaras"

Where is the word for seats?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mesmorino

It's not there. Report it.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ringoisfluffy

what? it does not say seats this is wrong!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ksloyer

It saying I missed a word. Seats... this word does not show up in the original sentence.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mesmorino

As you can see from the comments, you need to report it and move on. The next time you come across it, even if you choose the right answer, report it anyway.

Where did the seats come from?
