Why is åkte hem not suitable here?

December 26, 2014


It's an accepted answer. You can use åkte hem if you want to stress the fact that they used some kind of transportation.

I suppose the performance was bad, wasn't it?

The break in a play for instance is called pausen in Swedish, whereas rasten could be at school or work. (in English you can't tell, so both are accepted, I just felt I should point it out).

Could you please explain "de flesta"? I understand that "flesta" is the superlative of "många" in the plural, but where is "people", and what is the function of "de"?

De flesta människor was not accepted. Why not?

Also a learner here but i think the "människor" here is not necessary due to the context changing the meaning of flesta to imply people.

I entered "De flesta människor åkte hem efter rasten", but was considered wrong. May I know why the answer was not accepted?
