"The seventeen turtles are slow."
Translation:De zeventien schildpadden zijn langzaam.
Hi, I was wonderign why is the second solution to this question not correct? zeventien is 17, right? Thanks!
We can't see the mpc options, so I'm not sure if there's something wrong with the translation.
Duolingo wants all the numbers to be written, though. ;)
Because the adjective comes after the verb. De langzame schildpadden. De schildpadden zijn langzaam.
It seems to be different than an earlier example. The first used langzam and the coorect answer for this one is traag... Which we haven't learned yet.
I'm sorry, I don't understand your question. Het can only be a pronoun ('it') or an article ('the' for singular neuter gender nouns), it has nothing to do with zijn.
Could you rephrase your question?
