Quickly glancing at this English sentence is a good way to determine if you have a dirty mind.

"She likes what!? Oh, clocks. With an 'L'."

Haha, so I was not alone!

had multiply choices, it said another option is 'han gillar clockor'. Does 'gillar' man 'like' too? What is the difference between 'gillar' and 'tycker om?'

They're synonymous. Perhaps gilla is a tad bit more colloquial, but that's it.

Is there any way to be able to predict when the indefinite plural will end in -er, -ar, or -or, or is it strictly arbitrary?

I wonder the same thing

It was so curious, and I can't see anyone commenting it, so I guess I'm the only one. In the available options, I only have "Hon gillar klockor", it's the first time I see this "gillar" word, is there any difference between "gillar" and "tycker om" or we can use them as we want and both are correct?
